To complete the activity, you will need to make double bar and pie graphs of this data.
To learn how to do this using ClarisWorks/AppleWorks,
1. Make a double bar graph of the data and then use the graph to answer the following questions.
a. What is an obvious conclusion from the graph? ________________________________
b. With what country is our export and import trade most "balanced"? ________________
c. Compare our "balance of trade" with the United States to that of our other trading partners.
2. Make a pie graph of the export data and then use the graph to answer the following questions.
a. Does this graph support the conclusion from question 1 a? _________________________
b. Is it more or less effective in representing that conclusion? Why? ____________________
