# Graphical Interpretation-Understanding Protocol

*graphically*displayed in the diagram. The graphs generally represent different dimensions of the data.

*x*-axis, the production on the

*y*-axis, and at the same time, the market price, along a separate axis, say, the

*z*-axis, or along the

*xy*-plot so that you can analyze all angles of your business in a single chart.

*x*-axis, and positive slope indicates increase along the

*x*-axis.

The graphs below provide data from an entrance examination conducted in different years.

**Note:**The dimensions of the problem are the Exam, ‘D’-level (Difficulty level), Number of Questions, and Average Time Per Question.

In this year, the test takers were given the least time to answer all the questions | The exam was least difficult in these two years | |

If the *Pressure Factor* for the examinees is defined as Difficulty Level divided by Average Time (in minutes) given per question, then the Pressure Factor for CEE 2006 equals

And if the *Stress Factor* for the examinees is defined as the product of the Difficulty Level and the Number of Questions divided by the Average Time given per question, then the Stress Factor for CEE 2005 is

The Pressure Factor in 2006 equals

(Difficulty Level) ÷ (Average Time given per question) =

5/40 seconds or 5/(2/3 minutes) =

15/2 per minute

The answer is 7.5 from the drop-down menu.

The Stress Factor in 2005 equals

6 per second

The answer is 6 per second from the drop-down menu.
