**Best-Fitting Line Best-Fitting Line- a line that best fits that data.**

Steps for Drawing a Line of Best Fit: Plot all the data points Draw a line through the data with the same amount of points above and below the line Pick two points that are on the line Find slope Use one the of the points to find b Write equation in slope-intercept form

3
**Example: Plot Data Draw line of best fit Pick two points on the line**

Find slope Find b using one of the points Write equation X (Forearm Length) Y (Foot Length) 22 24 20 19 21 23 25 18

Example: Robert Wadlow:

5
**Correlation Positive Correlation No Correlation Negative Correlation**

y increases as x increases Negative Correlation y decreases as x increases No Correlation If the points show no linear pattern
