### Can a graph have two different scales?

YES, **you can take different scales on the x and y axis of a graph**. For example, you can take scale values on x axis in he form of multiples of 2 i.e., 2.

### How do you compare data with different scales?

The usual way of comparing across variables is to **calculate the mean for each variable and to compare the means**. However, since each of the variables is measured on a different scale these means will be extremely difficult to compare. For example, the mean on trust in government might be 4.

### Which chart is used to compare two measures of different scales?

**A combination chart** includes elements of both line charts and bar charts. When to use it. Pick this chart to visualize data sets with measures that have different scales. To compare several lines and bars for data sets with significantly different value ranges, use multiple scales on the y-axis.

### How do you compare two different graphs?

**Matching two graphs involves two basic steps:**

- Create a Relation Analysis Feature that compares two graphs. Use the Analysis feature to compute the difference between the graphs.
- Run an optimization study to minimize the difference.

### What are the two types of bar graph?

A **bar** chart can be categorized into **two** broad **types**, namely; horizontal and vertical **bar charts**. These **groups** are further subdivided into the various categories such as vertical stacked **bar** chart, horizontal grouped **bar** chart, and the like.

### What is the line of best fit on a graph?

Line of best fit refers to **a line through a scatter plot of data points that best expresses the relationship between those points**. ... A straight line will result from a simple linear regression analysis of two or more independent variables.

### Can you compare two graphs that use different scales explain your answer?

YES, **you can take different scales on the x and y axis of a graph**. For example, you can take scale values on x axis in he form of multiples of 2 i.e., 2. ... and the same you can do for y axis taking the scale values in the form of multiples of 20 i.e., 20, 40, 60, 80, … etc.

### How do you standardize data with different scales?

**Three obvious approaches are:**

- Standardizing the variables (subtract mean and divide by stddev ). ...
- Re-scaling variables to the range [0,1] by subtracting min(variable) and dividing by max(variable) . ...
- Equalize the means by dividing each value by mean(variable) .

### Which chart is used for comparison?

**a Pie Chart**. Pie charts are best to use when you are trying to compare parts of a whole. They do not show changes over time.

### Which chart type is most appropriate to show trend?

The chart type that is most appropriately used for showing trends is **- Line Chart**. The line chart is one of the most frequently used chart types, typically used to show trends over a period of time.

### How to choose the right scale for a graph?

Different graph types subsequently have different principles for selecting scales. For more on selecting the right graph type see Chart Chooser for trends For bar charts, the axis should always start at zero since it is the length of the bar that is being used to encode the data.

### How to compare the effect of different scalers?

Compare the effect of different scalers on data with outliers ¶ 1 Original data ¶. ... 2 StandardScaler ¶. ... 3 MinMaxScaler ¶. ... 4 MaxAbsScaler ¶. ... 5 RobustScaler ¶. ... 6 PowerTransformer ¶. ... 7 QuantileTransformer (uniform output) ¶. ... 8 QuantileTransformer (Gaussian output) ¶. ... 9 Normalizer ¶. ...

### Is there a way to create a comparison chart in Excel?

There is no chart with the name as Comparison Chart under Excel. However, we can add multiple series under the bar/column chart to get the Comparison Chart. A comparison chart is best suited for situations when you have different/multiple values against the same/different categories, and you want to have a comparative visualization for the same.

### Can you compare variables measured on different scales?

Apparently 'yes'. Same for your case, imagine all participants in both groups would totally agree (very artificial and would not work because there is not within group variability, but thats not the point) but the first group has maximum of 7 the other 11, can you compare this?
