Introduction to Adjusting Axes and Locations of Ticks

In Chapter 3, Creating Dynamically Linked Graphs, you created standard statistical graphs. In this chapter, you learn how to adjust the range and location of tick marks on axes. You also learn how to change the label for an axis. You cannot adjust the tick locations for nominal variables (for example, the horizontal axis on a bar chart), but you can change the axis label.
