so when you need to find out information you wont get the wrong answers

Multivariate is probably the most accurate answers. Graphs need not be bivariate - you can have graphs in 3 or more dimensions - not easy to visualise in more than 3-d but that does not mean they cannot exist. Graphs need not represent exact relationships - as any scattergram will demonstrate. Graphs are simply visual representations of information, presented in a form that [hopefully] conveys he information in an effective way. For one of my favourite semi-numeric graphs follow the link to see a graphical representation of Napoleon's invasion of Rusia.

Your eyes..?

There are various types of graphs. You need to be more specific. Graphs exist for thousands of subjects, and each one is different. But, basically, you need to gather all verifiable information on the subject in question before you begin.

All we need here is a graph to interpret

Depending on the graph, you look at the information given. For ex. in a line graph, the lines show information over time and you would look at the vertical axis to find the point in time you need. Let's say it was divided by years then you would look at the year you need the information for and then go upwards from the year to read the information. I know it sounds vague but if there was a graph, I would be able to give you more detailed answers. Hope it helps.

Different graphs need to be interpreted in different ways. It depends very largely on what information the graph is displaying. One of my favourite, but unusual, graphs represents the size of Napoleon's army marching into Russia and back. See link for more.

you need a purpose, hypothesis, materials, information collected, procedures, conclusion, graphs, and pictures:)

Graphing actually show you trends and gives you information you may not "see" otherwise.

Graphs help you see relationships in things such as inflation in money, or rising population.

numbers

There are many graphs which while you can usually use most of them no matter what experiment you are doing that is not always true, nor is it the right use of a graph. some of the most likely graphs you will probably come across , or for that matter need to use are bar graphs, line graphs, pie graphs, and picture graphs.
