Wouldn't it be better if we use Deal-Amount scatter plot instead? Year labels will be conise enough to show the trend.

BTW, I am a regular reader of the site. I found this your post very inspiring. Keep up the good work.


It depends on what relationship you're trying to explore. If the relationship between number of deals and deal size is desired, then a scatter plot would work well. In this case, they seem more interested in understanding the trend and the period-to-period changes.

Thanks for reading!
