These can be used to plot change over time and draw attention to the total value across a trend. By showing the sum of the plotted values, an area chart also shows the relationship of parts to a whole.
-- XY (scatter) charts
Data that's arranged in columns and rows on a worksheet can be plotted in an XY (scatter) chart.
A scatter chart has two value axes: a horizontal (x) and a vertical (y) value axis. It combines x and y values into single data points and shows them in irregular intervals, or clusters.
Scatter charts are typically used for showing and comparing numeric values, like scientific, statistical, and engineering data.
