### Vertical scale and interval affect the look of a bar graph or a line graph?

by making the graph have an important missing part...(hope it helps!)

### What is the difference between a linear graph and a non-linear graph?

linear: LINE example--- line non-linear: not a LINE example--- parabola The other possibility is a graph with a non-linear scale. First a linear scale will have each unit represent the same amount, regardless of where you are on the scale. A semilog scale, has a linear scale in the horizontal direction, and a logarithmic scale in the vertical direction. Exponential functions (such as ex &amp; 10x), will graph as a straight line on this type of graph scale). A logarithmic or log-log scale, has logarithmic scales on both horizontal and vertical axis. Power functions (such as sqrt(x), x2 and x3), graph as a straight line on these scales. See Related Link

### On a graph the vertical line is...axle?

On a typical graph, the vertical line is the y-axis, they horizontal line is the x-axis.

### How do you make a scale on a line graph?

you make a line graph and then put a scale on it

### Can there be a graph of a function be a vertical?

Yes. The graph of [ x = 2 ] is a vertical line.

### Why does increasing the size of the interval used in the vertical scale of a line graph make the line seem flatter?

increasing the interval would decreasing the degrees of accuracy of the graph, optically the line seem flatter

### How can you tell if a graph sHow is a function?

Test it by the vertical line test. That is, if a vertical line passes through the two points of the graph, this graph is not the graph of a function.

### Which type of line that tests for a function?

Vertical line. If you can draw a vertical line through some part of a graph and it will intersect with the graph twice, the graph isn't a function.

### What is the vertical axis of a graph called?

The y-axis is the vertical line on a line graph.

### Can a line be a graph of a function?

Yes the graph of a function can be a vertical or a horizontal line

### Can a line be the graph of a function?

Yes the graph of a function can be a vertical or a horizontal line
