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.
