Predator-Prey Graph help!!!

Postby bond2112 » Tue Oct 20, 2009 5:35 am

Hello, I am trying to figure out this question. I am taking a ILC Biology course and they would like me to graph this out using a Predator Prey chart. The problem is that they don't tell us how! And some of the math involved I do not understand. I will post the information below and any help would be greatly appriciated. Please keep in mind that I am NOT looking for answers for everything that is listed below just the methods (In Layman's Terms ha ha ha ) that would help me out. Again thank you for your time.

Plot the changes of the deer and the wolf in one chart.

YEAR DEER WOLF
1990 2000 10
1991 2300 12
1992 2500 16
1993 2360 22
1994 2244 28
1995 2094 24
1996 1968 21
1997 1916 18
1998 1952 19
1999 1972 19

on the X axis put down the years and on the Y axis put down the number of animals.
draw the 2 graphs for 2 animals.
but i do not know what scale to be used.
it isn't what you do that matters but it is how you do it

He can put it into one graph ;) e.g. in Excel, he can choose for one animal another scale on the other side.
I think this will be nice graph :) just a little short... :(

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
