    Have you plotted these points? Or are you supposed to set up a curve-fitting equation?

    Well I do not know how to. Do I do both the number of calories and grams of fat or all three points?

    hm. I don't think you need to worry here about the restaurant. Plot # calories on the vertical and # grams fat on the horizontal

    something like that... unless your class is asking you to do a true curve fit equation.

    this is a graphical question, you need to plot graph of grams of fat(x-axis) vs no. of calories.(y-axis) and plot points. and guess what the the points common in x and y axis would be your answer ;)
