How to show an Intersection point in a Microsoft Excel graph
In Excel, showing the intersection point on a graph refers to displaying the coordinates where two or more plotted lines or curves intersect. This feature is particularly useful when analyzing data and identifying the exact point of intersection between different variables or trends.
In this tutorial, we will learn how to show an Intersection point in a Microsoft Excel graph. In Microsoft Excel, we can simply identify the intersection point by utilizing the scatter chart with a smooth line.
Currently, we have a line chart, and our objective is to display the point where the line intersects with another line that has its data points specified within the sheet.
