The graph is to show the relationship between males' life expectancy at birth, and the % of households of lone parents with dependent children. I am only asking because though I referred to a statistics book to try to guide me as to the right graph, it wasn't very helpful and I don't want to use the wrong one. Thank you!

@Groble,
Huh, maybe a bar chart with a line graph running along with it? I figure you have different scales for the two variables. Excel calls it a "bar-line combination chart".

Here's one way it can look -

I don't recommend a lot of lines (see the figures below it on that page), as I personally think it looks busy and is a bit easier to follow. You don't want your graphs and charts to resemble printed circuit boards.
