ok the directions say..
"using different scales,make either two line graphs or two bar graphs for the set of data.use a break symbol in only one of the graphs.explain which graph shows the data more clearly.
"data"
___________________________________
year 1996,1997,1998,1999,2000,2001 weight 3114,3413,463,5510,2713,325
ok the year and the number at the bottom go together like 1996 goes with3114 and 1997 goes with3413
so i need to make this into a bar graph or line graph and on one of them i need a breakbut i don't know how to format the 3114 and the rest of the numbers pleasehelp

Since they are weights, and I assume you are working with imperial units, i.e. pounds and ounces, so 3413 would probably mean 34 pounds and 13 ounces.
To convert to decimal pounds, you would divide 13 ounces by 16 (1 pound=16 ounces) to get 34.8125 pounds, or round it to 34.8 pounds if you wish.
You may want to check your graph if the weight (of what?) makes sense using my interpretation above.
