You have been asked to prepare a report showing monthly sales by geographic region. Most of the managers using the report are not accountants, so your supervisor thought they would be more likely to use the report if it contained some images instead of just numbers. Your supervisor has asked you to add some charts and graphs to the report since “one picture is worth a thousand words.”
1. What types of graphs and charts do you think are best to show the monthly sales by geographic region?
2. What data would you display in the charts and graphs?
3. How would your answer change if the company had international sales?
