List sources not translating same to point by x,y coordinates

List’s created different ways and one works for creating points the other gives me broken results. Im not clear on the issue as both lists read the same in makup. what am i missing?

Hello Myles! You are not giving us a lot of clues, but I suspect that the first list are strings. Try the String.ToNumber node.

that did the trick. i came close to that conclusion prior but as the list results looked exactly the same i thought they were both numbers. thanks.

Here a funny answer to your question:
So it must be the content of your list.
