What are Recommended Charts in Microsoft Excel 2013

When creating a chart, it is sometimes a challenge to decide which chart type to use. In Excel 2013, you can now get a recommendation and see samples of the charts that Excel thinks fit your data. It is quite useful to see what it looks like before deciding if it is the right one for you.
