The table above provides a random set of data for you to graph on linear graph paper. You should try to put a straight line through the data. A best fit line. Don't try to put the line through any particular point but through all the data. The best fit line may not go through any of the points. A clear ruler helps. This allows you can see the points above and below the line to get a good balance. Draw the line. Estimate the intercept on the left y-axis and and value on the right y-axis or the x-axis. Calculate the slope from these two points.
