## Do you label graphs above or below?

In papers written for classes and submitted to journals, every table and figure should include a caption, honoring these common practices: The caption for a figure appears below the graphic; for a table, above. It is easy to get this wrong accidentally.

## How do you label a bar graph?

To properly label a graph, you should identify which variable the x-axis and y-axis each represent. Don’t forget to include units of measure (called scale) so readers can understand each quantity represented by those axes. Finally, add a title to the graph, usually in the form “y-axis variable vs. x-axis variable.”

**What are the three labels of a bar graph?**

A typical bar graph has a label or title, x-axis, y-axis, scales or increments for the axis, and bars. Some graphs may also have a legend that specifies what various colors represent, such as in a stacked bar graph. Bar graphs are ideal for comparing two or more values, or values over time.

**How do you label a graph properly?**

### What is a rule for a graph?

A function rule describes how to convert an input value (@$x@$) into an output value (@$y@$) for a given function. An example of a function rule is @$f(x) = x^2 + 3@$.

### Which graph is best used to make a prediction?

With a line graph, it is fairly easy to make predictions because line graphs show changes over a period of time. You can look at past performance in a line graph and make a prediction about future performance.

**What are the labels on a graph called?**

Graph Title: The title appears at the top of the graph and should describe the graph. Axis Labels: The labels that appear along the x and y-axes describing what is being measured.

**What is an appropriate title for a bar graph?**

Required bar graph titles include the name of the graph, the title of the vertical axes, and the title of the horizontal axes. It is important to title bar graphs carefully so the information makes sense and the graph is easy to read and understand. Name the bar graph.

## What needs to be included in the label for each axis of a graph?

Each axis should be labeled with the name of the numeric system as well as the measurements being used. For example, you may label the x axis with “Time (Days)”, indicating that each number written on the axis is a number of days.

## What does dry mix stand for?

dependent, \ responding, Y axis

**What does dry stand for?**

Don’t repeat yourself

**What is dry mix used for?**

Generally, dry-mix is used for small to medium volume placements or for conditions with limited vehicular access.

### How do you remember independent and dependent variables?

Many people have trouble remembering which is the independent variable and which is the dependent variable. An easy way to remember is to insert the names of the two variables you are using in this sentence in they way that makes the most sense.
