The bubble chart in above example shows average profit per sale on X-axis, number of sales on Y-axis, and profit of each of the 7 products indicated by bubble size. The intersection points of X and Y-axis variables determine the bubble position.

Profit amount is derived from number of sales and average profit per sale. Bigger the bubble size, higher is the profit amount.

You can also use this chart template to show number of sales, average price per sale and total revenue.


Total Revenue = Number of sales x Average price per sale
