Organizing raw data can help you see patterns and trends. One way to organize data is using a line plot.
A line plot uses a number line to show how often a value occurs in a data set.
 Find the least value, 0, and the greater value, 10 in the data set.
 Draw a number line from 0  10.
 Place an 'x' above each number on the number line for each time it appears in the data set.
