Follow Up Questions: *1)I only used one of the graphing softwares, but I looked at many of them. The best one for me was the
one I used: Charttool. It can make all the sorts of graphs I know, and can make them look good and clear to understand. And it is
very easy to save them under several formats.
*2)Those graphing tools would be better if they showed previews of what your graph looks like as you make changes.
