Hi, I'm Rachel, and today we're going to be going over how to do graphic arithmetic. Well this is a very wide topic, but the important thing to know is that it must be accurate, it is an accurate representation of, that is expressed visually. So you're, must make sure that it's accurate. So if for example you're drawing, you know, the sun, and the planets distance away from the sun, obviously it's going to be a smaller scale, right? Because you can't, you know, possibly draw it to scale, but you have to make sure that it's accurately drawn, you know, if a tiny centimeter is, you know, millions of miles then you have to make sure that each planet is drawn accurately. And, this so it's usually done with a visual representation, right? It can be some sort of bar graph, it can be, you know, something with all sorts of different lines, it could be anything. Just make sure that it's done accurately and that you're expressing visually what you're trying to communicate using, you know, the paper that you have and the space that you have, whether it's a map or, you know, showing the distance of planets from the sun. I'm Rachel, and thank you for learning with me today.
