I have a very simple x/y graph in excel.    I cant figure out how to get the graph to interpret the the x-axis as numbers.   It graphs them as text and won't recognize the value of  numbers for the axis

The distance between 3.22 and 5.25 (2 units) on the x axis is the same as the distance between 2.21 and 3.22 (1 unit)
