A

**line plot** is a data display, along a number line, which shows

frequency.

The frequency is represented with a marker, like an

**x** or a dot.

To make a line plot for the data, make a number line with the lengths of the pencils along the bottom.

Then, place the same number of **x**'s above each length as the number shown with each length in the table.

So, place 5

**x**'s above 15 centimeters, place 4

**x**'s above 16 centimeters, and place 3

**x**'s above 17 centimeters.
