  1. Write an equation for the line of best fit. What are the units for slope and y‑intercept for your equation?

    Eyeball a line of best fit. Then estimate the slope and y-intercept of your line.

    y = x + 2

  2. Based on your equation, what would you expect to be the mass of a 26-inch chain?

  • Substitute 26 into your equation for x and evaluate for y.
