How do you make a T Chart in Word?

Making a T-chart is easy, you just create 2 dividing lines in the shape of a T. This is a simple and great organizational tool to help you solve equations with more than one variable. This is one way to help solve equations with variables, which are any unknowns in an equation or formula. If you want to make a T-chart in Excel, you can easily select the area that you wish to use to make your comparison. Begin by writing down two subjects you would like to compare. These are placed on both sides of the table and will form the headings of your T chart. Consider making these two top cells bold so that you can distinguish them from the bulk of your data. Then the next step is to (equally) divide the space into 2, and separate both areas by 1 thicker line vertically through the middle. 

If you prefer to make one yourself and to start from scratch, here are 2 ways to make the graphical organizers yourself in PowerPoint:

  1. In your blank DOCX document, click Insert > Table;
  2. Select 2 columns and the number of records you need (for example 2*6 and follow visual directions);
  3. Write down 2 variables as headers in the first line of the table;
  4. Enter your data into the table that automatically opens with the table.

How to use a T Chart in Word?

Whenever you have equations with unknowns, you can use a T-chart to organize and solve problems. Each side of the scheme represents a variable, or unknown. Then you can start filling them into two different cells in the top row of your excel spreadsheet.  The left part of the chart is the one we call the independent variable since it does not matter which real number we choose. On the right side, we call the dependent variable since it depends on what we choose for the independent variable. By using each field or line, we can fill in the items we like to compare. You may circle those that you prefer if you wish to add another dimension to your table. By circling your choice or preference, you will see a total overview of which side of the chart has the most likable outcomes.

The great thing about such a simple T-chart graph where two columns are used to solve underlying problems of comparison is that it instantly organizes and structures the information that is already in your head. It helps you clean up and progress on your decision. By showing those two variables and their outcomes in 1 clear overview.

  • Breaks down personal or business' expenses and assets;
