Question

In the context of this exercise, why is it helpful to visualize data?

Answer

There are some important reasons why it is helpful to visualize data. One is that it allows you to communicate the data more clearly to others. By showing a visual representation of the data, it is much easier to understand than if you were just showing the pure data itself.

In addition, visualizing data lets us see and identify patterns and trends in the data, that might not have been apparent without seeing a visual representation. Graphs can show peaks, valleys, curves, spikes, and other shapes or trends of the data that can help us understand the behavior and qualities of data.

As the saying goes, a picture, in this case, a visualization, can be worth a thousand words.
