We have no view of the scatter plots!!

For question 1 it looks like a straight line through the points would go through y = 2 when x = 0, so the constant term is 2.

The line would increase by 2 units in y for every 1 unit increase in x, so the gradient is 2.

Hence the best fit line would be y = 2x + 2

Try the others using the same reasoning (if the line decreases as x increases the gradient will be negative).

Question 2

It appears that  when y changes by -3, x changes  by 3

So the slope is  :  change in y  / change in x   =   -3/3  = -1

And the y intercept  is at 6

So.....using the slope intercept form :

y = -1x + 6    =  -x + 6

Question 3

When  y changes by - 1, x changes by 2  →  slope  =   -1/2

And the y intercept appears to be at  -1

So   the equation is

y  = (-1/2)x - 1

Question 4

Easy!!!....this is a vertical line  at x  = -3

And that's the equation !!!!
