Hi, I'm Christina Chiu. I'm a Web and Computer Specialist, and today I'm going to show you how to make a dot plot using Microsoft Word. Now, a dot plot is another chart as soon as we open our Microsoft Word, let's go ahead and insert a chart. So, we'll click on the insert tab right here and click on chart right here. And you select a, the XY scatter 'cause the XY scatter is another form of the dot plot. So, click on that and click on okay. As you can see, you can also import different types of charts. You have bar or line, but we're just going to use the XY scatter line. And now after you do that, it'll open up a Microsoft Excel with x and y values. The x values are the values on the vertical bottom and the y values are the one on horizontal top, left side. So, if you want to, you can change it to, on the one, two, three; on the y rows it could be, eight, two, thirteen. And once we do that, it done upload changes our chart so we can see right here in our little chart that it's now the values are on and little dots to resemble the values. You can also even add more to your XY if you want. So, if you want a fifth value, make this bigger, fifth value to be four and then another y value can be, I don't know, twelve. And then, when you look at the chart again, you shall see that. Alright. Well, that is how you implement a dot plot using Microsoft Word. Thank you so much for your time, my name is Christina Chiu.
