The Advanced Data Grapher can be used to analyze data with box plots, bubble graphs, scatterplots, histograms, and stem-and-leaf plots. You can enter multiple rows and columns of data, select which set(s) to display in a graph, and choose the type of representation. (To analyze data with bar graphs, line graphs, pie charts, or pictographs, try the Data Grapher.)
Data can be entered in multiple rows and columns. To add rows and columns, use the Add Row and Add Column buttons:
Although there is no limit to the number of rows that may be added, no more than six columns of data are allowed.

The values displayed on the x‑axis are automaticaly determined by the data values that have been entered in the rows and columns.
