Using Netscape, you can change the values in the table above the graph and then click the reload button to see a new graph. But in Internet Explorer, it probably won't work and you will need to enter into a spreadsheet.

Use the following information to adjust the values on the graph above to make a similar graph for Canga Rue's students' favorite pastime.

Twice as many students chose "playing computer games" as chose "talking in a chat room". Twenty seven less students liked "watching TV" than liked "playing computer games". One hundred eighty eight students either liked "playing computer games" or "listening to music". 1/7 of the total students chose "talking in a chat room". Six less students liked "talking on the phone" than "listening to music". The remaining students liked "reading".
