Subject: Re: Graphing

Yes it is correct. The reason the bar graph works is you are measuring the distance of a roll. The roll is a discrete piece of data. You can not have one and a half rolls. You either roll or you don't. You have the distance of the roll itself. So roll three that traveled 3 feet is one discrete piece of data.
