How do you write a figure paragraph?

Figures should always be placed at the conclusion of the paragraph in which they are first mentioned. This will help the reader locate the figure more easily. Use subheads to identify important points within figures. Figure paragraphs should include the following elements: a title for the figure, an explanation of the topic it illustrates, and a summary of the key findings.

Where do you put figures in a report?

Figures should be numbered in the same order in which they appear in the text. They are referred to in the order in which they appear in the text (i.e., Figure 1 is referenced in the text before Figure 2 and so forth). The text should be separated from the figures and should not flow around them. Figures should be placed at the beginning of paragraphs, with space after them to allow for placement of footnotes or other annotations.

Figure legends are explanatory texts that accompany each figure in the report. They describe what the figure represents, not just who it represents. Therefore, like any other part of the body of evidence, figures need to be cited in the text of the report. The best place to reference a figure is immediately following its use in the text. For example, if figure 3 shows a bar graph comparing sales before and after an advertisement campaign, then the reader would find information on page 5 about how many units of each product were sold before and after the campaign, followed by a citation to the figure showing the results of the experiment (i.e., "Sales increased 40 percent after the ad campaign.").

Figure numbers are used throughout the report to refer back to particular figures or parts of figures. For example, if you were discussing results shown in figures 4 and 5, you would reference them as "figures 4 and 5".

Figure numbers are usually placed near where they are first mentioned in the text.

How do you write Figure 1?

Figures should be labeled with the figure number and a descriptive title (behind the figure). They are listed in the order in which they appear in the text. Figures may be enlarged by the reader using digital tools such as PDF readers.

Figures should be helpful to the reader but not take up too much space in the text. If a reader needs to read about some general topic before reading your figures, it would be best if that material was included in the main body of the paper rather than in the form of a figure. Images in figures should be high quality and free of any copyright restrictions.

Figures should follow the same format as the rest of the paper. They should be clear and concise without going into excessive detail. It is acceptable to use tables instead of figures if they help to explain your point more clearly. Tables should also follow a clear structure with titles, columns and rows.

Use good taste and common sense when naming figures. Do not use the words "Figure" or "Tables" in the title. These should be replaced with a more informative and accurate description of what the image is. For example, "A plot of data set X against Y" rather than "A figure showing how data set X varies as a function of Y".

Where to place figures and figures in a text?

Place the table or figure near where it is first mentioned in the text (preferably immediately below the paragraph in which it is first mentioned). Tables and figures in your content should be referred to by their numbers rather than their location in the text. For example, say that you want to mention that the blue book is page 13 of this volume instead of saying "blue book on page 13".

This is easier to do if there is room under the paragraph where you want to insert the reference. If not, then start the sentence with "In this case..." or "In order to illustrate..." In these cases, you need to provide a footnote number even though you are referring to a single word-figure combination. The footnote number should be placed after the parentheses containing the word-figure combination.

Here are some examples of references to tables and figures:

Table 1. Table contents.

Figure 5. Illustration of concept behind table's contents.

Figure 6.

Note that both tables are cited as numbers rather than locations. That is, they are referred to by their Aarons_table number rather than their actual location in the text.

Table 2. Another table.

Figure 7.
