I am working on a bar chart and I need to change the maximum value of the y axis. My data is as such, I have a group of 8 people who have voted whether they like 4 colours. They can choose 0 up to 4 colours by ticking next to the colour. I have gathered this data and I now want to plot a bar char such that the maximum value on the y-axis is 8 even if the maximum vote obtained is 6 for example. Is this possible in Matlab? Right now if the maximum vote obtained is 6 , the maximum value on the y-axis is 6.
