## How will i enter the data in making the line graph?

I want to make a line graph but the problem is I don't know how to enter my data in distance and in elevation. Kindly please help me on this how to start the line graph.

In answer to your question, I made a short video that demonstrates how to enter data into the line graph with your own numbers. Go to Line Graph to see the video.

As for your specific question on distance and elevation data, I would assume that you want to see how elevation increases or decreases as you increase the distance from a starting point. So you would start by zeroing out all the example data with a series of tab deletes. Then you would enter your distance data where the year data was before. Finally you would enter the elevation data that corresponds with the distance data. Congratulations you have your graph.
