    That completely depends on the context of what you are using them to calculate. What exactly are you trying to do?

    I am trying to divide l by my x axis values (1 through 8) but I don't know what l means... In my other graphs I squared x, cubed x, square rooted x, and square cubed x... in this one I am suppose to suppose to Determine the value of (l/x).

    Have you been told what number l represents? l is just some number, it could be ANY number, but more information is needed to determine which number it is.
