Question

# This scatter plot shows the hours a cubic foot of ice was exposed to sunlight versus the amount of ice that melted in cubic inches. Draw an informal line of best for the given scatter plots.

Hint:

### A trend lines are a visual representation of support and resistance in any time of frame for a given data. They show direction and describe the pattern of the data.

We are asked to draw a line that best models the scatter plot.

## The correct answer is: We are asked to draw a line that best models the scatter plot.

### ANSWER:

**Step 1 of 2:**

The given scatter plot is based on the hours taken for number of ice to melt. It is clear that the points do not fall on a single line. But we can approximate the pattern using a line. Make sure that the points align closely around the line, once you draw it.

Step 2 of 2:

Thus, the corresponding trend line for the graph is:

Step 2 of 2:

Thus, the corresponding trend line for the graph is:

**It is not necessary that the line should contain all the points, since we use it to approximate the pattern for the given data. Moreover, a scatter plot could have more than one trend line, but choosing one that shows the behavior of the data should be considered.**
