I have to create a column graph of the mean number of push ups done by males vs females, with a range bar of the highest and lowest number for each column, but I have no idea how to do it! I was given all the sets of data in a spreadsheet, without the mean. The question is, can I create a column graph of the data, and then put range bars in? Do I have to find the mean and graph that? HELP!!!

Do you mean like in attached doc (Error Bars to show range.ods)?...

Error bars show range when calculated using AVERAGE, MIN and MAX functions.

Nice work but a really ugly dynamite chart. Smile

@essenceofinsanity
A column (bar) chart with ranges is a really bad way to display the data that you have. You can use Ken's approach but change the chart type to xy-graph to get a much better graphic
