Best Answer

There are times when there is no logic in doing so.

For example, suppose you had a graph of the heights and weights of a class of students. Each data point would be an ordered pair representing the height and weight of a particular student. What, if anything, would a line connecting one student to the next represent?

If you had a formula you would plug numbers in for the variables and solve for the other variables create a list of coordinates (data points). Next you would graph those points and connect the dots.

Connect the two points.

It depends on what you are trying to do.

When the data on the graph is continuous,it does make sense to connect the points on the graph of 2 related variables.

yes

It is improper to connect the dots on a graph because experimental data never makes a straight line. the dots in a graph (points) are not guaranteed to be right. hopes this helps SR. :)

If you had a formula you would plug numbers in for the variables and solve for the other variables create a list of coordinates (data points). Next you would graph those points and connect the dots.

If the variables are something continuous, then you should connect the points. For example, if it is your height and weight then since those variables are continuous it is necessary to connect the points plotted on the coordinate graph.

Because their is no lines on the graph to connect the point.

A scatter plot would be best for non-related data points. A line graph would be best for related data points.

No.If the points on the graph are connected then they are already connected so it would be complete waste of time to connect them.

(it makes sense to connect the points on a graph wen there is movement....or so u can see it more cearly)--BreeBree..... hope i helped!! OR you could connect the points when it is a continuous thing.
