Gr.12 Data Management
 
I really need help. I will try my best to post this chart.

Age/Mass
5/ 24
6 / 25
7 / 27
8 / 28
9 / 31
10 /34
11 /38
12 /41
13 /47
14 /55
The slashes are there to separate the numbers and columns

How would you determine the equation of the line of best fit through these points. Its a curve by the way.

An exponential fit seems rather close to me. Plot the natural log of the mass versus the age. It more or less conforms to a linear relationship. One would expect that a young boy may sometimes indulges!
