I think that you have used a line chart and what you want is an x-y graph.

Sorry, I should probably have explained a bit more. A line graph is on that has numeric values on the y-axis and categorical data on the x-axis. Basically a line graph is just another way of drawing a barchart. The x-axis just displays the number of categories that are listed. Thus 1,2,3 or A, B, C will give you three equally sized spaces on the x-axis.

It looks to me as if Calc is reading your data selection as two sets of data that are to be graphed against the row numbers where the row numbers are just categorical. You want to have an x-y graph so that both the x and the y axes are numeric. Then they should scale properly.

This is not the best explaination of graphing categorical vs continuous data but I hope it helps a bit.
