Copy the graphs below onto your paper. Then complete the scale by labeling the remaining tick marks.

Scaling Axes

The numbers on each axis of a graph or a number line show the scaling of the axes. The difference between consecutive markings tells the size of the interval. When you scale each axis, you must use equal intervals to represent the data accurately. For example, an interval of

Notice on the graph at right that *fourth* interval from zero. If you divide

The second graph at right has each interval labeled. Labeling the graph this way is called “scaling the axis.”
