Whats up with spacing of x^2, 0.5x^2, and 2x^2!?

So, I was playing with an online graphing calculator and I plugged in 0.5xxand 2xand when I went up to higher numbers, such as x=10, I noticed they were unevenly spaced. This puzzles me because 0.5xand 2xSHOULD be equally spaced from xbecause they are both off by a factor of 2, but 0.5xis farther away from xthan 2xis. :O
