Step 2. Selecting Data to Graph

Picture Two5
1. "Save" your table. Click on the "File" menu at the top left and select "Save." When the dialog box appears, type in a title for your worksheet, something like "Anadara Shell Thickness" and click "Save."

2. Now you are ready to make a graph! Click and hold the mouse button on cell 2A. While you are still holding the button, drag the mouse cursor up and to the left and highlight all the cells from 2A to 17B and then let go of the mouse button. When you have done this correctly, it will look like the example. (If it doesn't look the same or you want to try again, click any where on the sheet to "un-highlight" it and try again.)

3. Be sure to highlight only the numerical values, not the words on your worksheet!
