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 31-14,34-13,46-3,55-10,27-13,32-5

ok the year and the number at the bottom go together like 1996 goes with31-14 and 1997 goes with34-13

so i need to make this into a bar graph or line graph and on one of them i need a breakbut i dont know how to format the 31-14 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 34-13 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.
