I'm having trouble with this question....Eli kept a record of how many baskets each team member made in 10 tries. Which is the BEST data display for Eli to use to show this data? I know it is not a circle graph or a line plot. I have it narrowed down to either a line plot or a pictograph. I know a line plot shows frequency of the number of baskets made out of 10 tries for all of the players on the team but it would not compare the number of baskets made by each player like a pictograph would. How do I decide which it would be?
