# How do you draw a trend line on a scatter graph?

A simple method involves cutting a rubber band. Then the rubber band straight line is stretched over the scatter diagram and moved about until you feel that 50 % of your data

# How do you find slope for a scatter plot?

it is impossible to find the exact slope of a scatter plot. instead you must find the line of best fit. if you find it with a graphing calculator, it is easy. you go to STAT

# How do you find out what correlation a scatter plot has?

It is easy to find the correlation. First you see how far apart the dots are. if they are going UP like this /

# Draw a scatter plot of the data and dtaw a line that corresponds closely to the data and write an equation of the line?

x 7.1 8.1  3.0 8.5  3.4

# How do you find the slope of a scatter plot after you find the line of best fit?

You find two perfect points (exactly on a point) and use the formula y2-y1 over x2-x1

# When are scatter plots used?

to show the relationship between 2 sets of data

# When is there no trend line for a scatter plot?

When there is no trend!

# How do you find a line of best fit from scatter plot?

The line of best fit is simply the line that shows the general direction of the graph. The trick is to make the line go through as many points on the graph as possible. Some s

# How do you find the equation that matches a scattered plot?

use a graphing calculator. chances are, it's not linear; it's probably got some high-degree function with non-whole number coefficients. i think you can download a free graphi

# Are trends best observed in scatter plots line graphs or circle graphs?

scatter plot and line graph

# Does the trend line always pass through every point on a scatter plot?

No. When you draw a best line of fit on the scattered plot, the line would not be straight.
