  1. You would plot time (months) along the x-axis, and the weight along the y-axis.

    Positive slope means the y-values increase with increase in x-values, and negative slope means the y-values decrease as x increases.

    Since losing weight means weight decreases with time, you have a line/curve that goes downwards as time increases.

    Will let you take it from here.
