Question and answer
Q: Why is a graph helpful when trying to share information?
A: "A picture is worth a thousand words." This is certainly true when you're presenting and explaining data. You can provide tables setting out the figures, and you can talk about numbers, percentages, and relationships forever. [ However, the chances are that your point will be lost if you rely on these alone. Put up a graph or a chart, and suddenly everything you're saying makes sense! ]

User: What information can more easily be cconveyed throgh the use of a graph as opposee to a written summary

Weegy: Making sense of a company?s data. Big corporations have millions upon millions of data to sift through. This data is extremely important to these companies. [ [ It is so important in fact that they spend millions of dollars a year in consultants and purchasing data mining and graphing software to make sense of it all. By using graphs, they can more easily follow trends and make decisions that will benefit their bottom line. In fact, it is almost impossible to find a corporation that does not use graphs in one for or another. ] ]
