Full width at half maximum

Can we calculate FWHM directly from peak/graph without using any software? if yes then, how?

Yes. Sketch it out and use a ruler. Seriously. That's the quickest way to do it. Well, aside from unleashing your TI on it.

Nostalgia (it's not what it was)

In the good old days (when I were a lad),
Computers filled a large room and were attended by priest-like acolytes who accepted your offering of punched cards to submit to the mighty machine.

Ok perhaps a bit over the top, but certainly something as trivial as plotting data would never be done by computer.
Pencil and (graph) paper was the only way.
There was an old joke that if your curve does not fit the data, use a blunter pencil.

Most software does nothing more than automate the old manual pencil and paper methods.
