# Trouble plotting a graph, Help Watch

1. I have some homework to plot a graph and I am having trouble finding a scale to use for my y-axis.

The values range from 127.497 - 145.414, all but one of the results is 145. and it's just the decimal values that changes. The only one that isn't 145. is the 127.497.

Standard graph paper is used.

Any help is appreciated.

I would bite the bullet and do one of those scales that doesn't start at 0 on the y axis - instead, count how many squares you have to work with on the y axis, and try to use a big a scale as possible. Maybe start with 125 and get to 150 with as big intervals as possible so that the 145.... shows up clearly enough.
