Insert a Chart
Charts present information visually and make a presentation aesthetically pleasing. They give an
instant impression of trends, or they compare sets of data, such as sales growth over a
severalyear span. Charts tell a story with a brief viewing and can convey statistical information quickly. You
can add these visual-analysis tools to your presentation to convey summarized information quickly
to your audience. PowerPoint allows you to choose the chart type and then type chart data into a
spreadsheet.
