Follow Up Questions
What was the easiest program to use in relation to displaying statistics? Why?
Microsoft Excel was the easiest because it's very simple and you can make lots of different types of graphs quickly and very easily. These makes the excel best.
What would you like a graphing programme to do for you that you currently cannot access?
Possibly more types of the graphs and if it was easier to change the graph layouts then it would be easier to match our needs.
