Problem 22BSC

Deceptive Graphs. In Exercises, identify the characteristic that causes the graph to be deceptive.

Subway Fare In 1986, the New York City subway fare cost $1, and in 2003 the cost was raised to $2, so the price doubled. In the accompanying graph, the $2 bill is twice as long and twice as tall as the $1 bill.

Answer :

Step 1 of 1 :

The fare doubled from $1 to $2, but when the $2 bill is shown with twice the width and twice the height of the $1 bill, the $2 bill has an area that is four times that of the $1 bill, so the illustration greatly exaggerates the increase in fare.
