We want to find out which type of trash makes up the biggest portion of all the trash collected on a beach. To do this we want to look at the totals for each type of trash.

Here is a table of the data:

Plastic Glass Metal Wood Paper Styrofoam Rubber Cloth Cig. Other Total
Total 5324 603 663 1080 4876 6278 257 278 13546 359 33264

Trying to understand exactly what this data means by looking at this table can be difficult. This is where graphs can help. Graphs give you a quick picture of the numbers.
Choose which graph you think will be best for showing the trash collection data.
