From the data in the table above, find the top 8 states with the most number of total murders. Then, construct a table showing the number of murders by each category of firearms. Rank 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 States Total Murders Total Firearms Handguns Rifles Shotguns Firearms (Type Unknown) 2. Using the top 8 states with the most number of murders, construct a pie chart representing the number of murders in each state committed with shotguns; use percentages to make sure that the pie chart is correctly proportioned. Show your graph here: 3. Using the top 8 states with the most number of murders, construct a bar graph representing the number of murders in each state committed with shotguns; use percentages to make sure that the bar graph is correctly proportioned. Show your graph here: 4. Using the top 8 states with the most number of murders, construct an area chart representing the number of murders in each state committed with shotguns; use actual numerical values and make sure the area chart is correctly proportioned. Show your chart here: 5. Which of the three chart types do you think gives the most useful visual information about the data represented? Please do your research and include appropriate references that support your final answer. Explain your answer here: 6. Is there another chart type that you think would better represent these data? Why or why not? Please do your research and include appropriate references that support your final answer. Explain your answer here: Reference Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). (2015).
