## Can a graph have 2 y-axis?

A second Y axis is a Y axis drawn on the right-hand side of a chart. It can show the same axis scale as the primary Y axis or a different scale. You can use a second Y axis with the same scale as the primary Y axis on a wide chart to help viewers interpret the data more easily.

**What is a dual y-axis graph?**

A dual y-axis chart allows you to summarize or plot two y-axis variables that have different domains. For example, you can plot the number of cases on one axis and the mean salary on another.

**Which of the two axes is the y-axis?**

vertical axis

A coordinate grid has two perpendicular lines, or axes (pronounced AX-eez), labeled just like number lines. The horizontal axis is usually called the x-axis. The vertical axis is usually called the y-axis. The point where the x- and y-axis intersect is called the origin.

### When should you use double Y axes in a visualization?

What are Double Y-Axis Graphs? You can use the Double Y-axis Graphs to plot two different data series. You can achieve this using a secondary y-axis on the right hand side. These visualization designs display insights into the relationship between two variables.

**What are the two axes?**

The coordinate plane has two axes: the horizontal and vertical axes. These two axes intersect one another at a point called the origin. Learn about the ordered pair that indicates the origin and its location in the coordinate plane by watching this tutorial!

**What is the axes on a graph?**

Axes are the lines that are used to measure data on graphs and grids. There are two types of axes: the vertical axis, and the horizontal axis. These are also known as the x and y-axis.

#### Why are dual axis charts misleading?

Misusing the Dual-Axis They are used to compare two variables with different magnitudes and scales of measurement, in hopes of proving or disproving a trend. The problem is that dual-axis charts can alter the perception of the viewer, leading them to make the wrong conclusions.

**Why a combo chart configured with two Y axes should be used?**

The scale of the secondary Y-axis reflects the values for the associated data series. While the secondary Y-axis can be used with any line and bar chart type, it is more commonly used with the combination chart type, which helps to distinguish the data series that are plotted on the secondary Y-axis.

**How do I plot multiple Y axis in Excel?**

Add or remove a secondary axis in a chart in Excel

- Select Design > Change Chart Type.
- Select Combo > Cluster Column – Line on Secondary Axis.
- Select Secondary Axis for the data series you want to show.
- Select the drop-down arrow and choose Line.
- Select OK.
