In this video, learn how to create XY (scatter) charts, where you measure two variables, such as daily sales and rainfall for the day, and plot the information on a chart.
- [Instructor] When you have data that is based on time…you can create a line chart to summarize it.…Other times when you have two sets…of numerical values such as the amount of a discount…and the corresponding increase in bid requests…you need to use what's called an XY Scatter chart.…I'll demonstrate how to create one…of those charts in this movie.…As I mentioned, this workbook contains data…about the amount of discount offered to a customer…and the corresponding increase…in bid requests over previous data.…
So for example you can see that…if you offer a customer a $200 discount…on the final project then you get…30 more bid requests than you did before.…If you want to graph these two sets of values together…then you can create an XY Scatter chart.…To do that select any cell…in the data range that you want to summarize…and then on the insert tab of the ribbon…go to the charts area and click the XY Scatter button.…
And here you can select the type of Scatter chart…you want to create.…In this case we will just show the points…
