Math – Line Of Best Fit
iFrame is not supported!


Key Takeaways


  • On a scatterplot the line of best fit is used to make predictions
  • Pay close attention to the scale because the axes may not start at the origin, throwing off an attempt to visually identify the intercepts
  • If you need to get the slope, be sure to pick points far enough apart to let you get a good approximation
