The blue line of best fit for boys intersects the vertical axis at 20 inches and the point (12.5, 25). Which equation best describes the boy's line of best fit?

• math -

Is the relation supposed to be linear?
If so, then you have two ordered pairs,
(0,20) and (12.5 , 25)

Find the equation of that line using your usual method.
