Chart This Data in Excel

Today’s challenge is a simple one but has many answers.  You will be presented with a small set of data and I would like to see all the different charts that you think are the best.  I will post pictures of all the charts submitted next Friday, so please send me a sample of what you think represents the data in the best way.

Client Request: “Above is a comparison of the prices of 3 courier services. What the price is at certain quantity of packages and what the prices are at various distances the courier has to travel. I am leaning towards a simple column graph, but I don’t know how to show it so I can pass along the point in a simple manner. Any suggestions? Thanks. ”

 

Extra Credit

If we add more data points for numbers of packages (Pkg (#)) how would you chart this data?  Same or differently?
