## UNDERSTAND AND USE THE CONCEPT OF LINES OF BEST FIT

THE CONCEPT OF LINES OF BEST FIT.

The properties of the line of best fit. The straight line is drawn such away that it passes through as many points as possible. The number of points that do not lie on the straight line drawn should be more or less the same both sides of the straight line.

Example. Draw the line of best fit for the given graph below. y

x EXERCISE 1 1. Draw the line of best fit for the following diagrams. x
