As a nurse in a hospital, your observe that certain kinds of pain may be allievated by mere offering of a drug, potent or not. To test this hypothesis, two pain drugs and placebo randomly adminstered to patients following surgery. Time is recorded in hours until patient complains of pain.

What kind of graph would you use to summarize the results?


I'm having difficulty deciding what to use. I initally thought a bar graph but after trying it out. I can't decide if that's the right choice. Can someone help me out?

    Try a bar graph with type of medication on the y axis and time in hours on the x axis. Your bars will be horizontal.

    Thank you! I think I was just hesitant with the bar graph because veritcally it looked too crowded with five patients for each drug but horizontally not as big of an issue.
