Deceptive Graphs. In Exercises 21–24, identify the characteristic that causes the graph to be deceptive.

Braking Distance Data Set 14 in Appendix B lists braking distances (ft) of different cars, and  the braking distances of three of those cars are shown in the accompanying illustration.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Problem 24BSC

Answer:

Step1 of 3:

We have Data Set 14 in Appendix B lists braking distances (ft) of different cars, and the braking distances of three of those cars are shown in the accompanying illustration.

Step2 of 3:

We need to  identify the characteristic that causes the graph to be deceptive.

Step3 of 3:

Here the characteristic that causes the graph to be deceptive is the bars do not start from 0 (but from 130), which should be true for bar graphs.The actual braking distances are 133 ft., 136 ft., and 143 ft., so the differences are relatively small, but the illustration has a scale that begins at 130 ft., so the differences are grossly exaggerated.
