    Cool Simple help required ?!?

    Hi all, New to the forum so please don't shout if I got this in the wrong place. I'm sure it will be moved if this is the case

    I have a table that needs completing and I must be missing something easy -

    Row 1: ? ? 1.3 1.4 1.6 1.7 1.9 2.2 2.4 2.7 ? 3.6 4.2 ? ? ? 10 14.3 20 ?
    Row 2: 50 to 95 in steps of 2.5.

    The rows line up vertically and the unknowns are marked '?'.
    Is there a sequence here? Numbers 'may be' rounded too!

    Q2 - how do you insert a table

    Thanks all

    Plot your data, then draw as smooth line as you can to represent the data, and read off the missing values.

    It sure does look like it is meant to be in a graph.
    Are you thinking Log or Function or

    Well log-log does not look as good by log of row 1 against row 2 looks better that just ploting them as they are.

    @ Ron,
    Log-Log. Phew, this takes me back. I'm not saying I'm old, but I can remember asking my Physics Prof, '...but what are protons made from?'. "Nothing", he replied,"This is as small as we get!"

    Back to the graph...Sorted
    And I thank you for your help.
    No need for the missing numbers, roundings or anything else.
    Glad I asked the question and the answer was so simple (relative) I could not see it.

    I forgot how many tools there are.
