Getting to graphs axis as numbers rather than labels

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

Thanks, but now I am not sure what´s the problem. I see your X-axis as numbers, I cannot see any text here as you complaining

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)
