Definition of Line Graph

A line graph displays data as a set of points connected by lines.

This enables you to see how changes in one variable affect the values of the other variable.

For example, using a line graph, you can easily see when a value increases or decreases with time, or spot the time periods in which the other variable is largest, or smallest.
