What is your reasoning behind choosing option D?
I used excel to calculate best-fit line, and I got D
could you take a screen shot of your excel file to review it?
Explain how you used excel to find the line of best fit . How would anyone know that you know What you are doing?
did you use the year for your x values and y for the amount gold produced?
Yeah...that's what I was supposed to do, right?
that's correct. I just put them into excel and im not coming up with D. Check to make sure you're using a linear trend line
Ohh wait so it would be C, right?
not quite, dont use best fit, use a linear trend line and if you entered all the data points correctly you shouldnt get c or d
Ah, thanks so much. I appreciate your help.
sure thing, were you able to find your mistake in excel?
Yeah, I was. Thanks for showing yours.
Great! Good job and good luck with the rest of your homework!
