- The line graph illustrates the date about people at a London subway station from 6 am to 10 pm.
- As we can see from the line graph, the number of people using this station fluctuates over these 16 hours. More specifically, at first at 6 am the number of people at the station stands at only 100.
- Then, the number shoots up over the next two hours, peaking at 400 at 8 am. After that, the number declines rapidly for two hours, bottoming out at 180 at 10 am. The period between 10 o ‘clock and 12 o’clock experiences a slight growth in the number of people in the station, with the number reaching 280 at midday.
- Numbers in the following two hours level off at just under 300 people. From this point onwards, the number plunges to only 100 from 2 pm to 4 pm. The next two hours experiences a sharp rise again, with 6 pm arriving at 380 people. After 6 pm, the number falls again, reaching the lowest point of 130 at 8 pm. The period from 8 pm to 10 pm sees a slight rise, but finally the number of people declines again from 180 at 9 pm to 135 at 10 pm.
