Consider the scatter plot shown. Which shows the line of best fit? Explain your reasoning.

A scatter plot is shown in the xy-plane. The values on the x-axis range from 0 to 9 in increments of 1 and the values on the y-axis range from 0 to 9 in increments of 1. Data points are scattered between 0 to 3 on the x-axis and 0 to 8.5 on the y-axis. Three lines labeled as Line 1, Line 2, and Line 3 are shown. Line 1 passes between the points such that most of the points are on the left of the line, Line 2 passes between the points such that the points are on both sides of the line, and Line 3 passes between the points such that most of the points are on the right of the line.

2. It's line 2. Line 1 goes way above most of the points and is most definitely not centered between the points, and line 3 has the same problem, but it's too far below the points, leaving tons above it.
