I've been told that their exists no perfect mathematical method of obtaining a line of best fit from a population of data.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

This doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me, so I have made an attempt at doing such (see google docs link)

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1_Ux4ypYtQcTtuO3bq8fTBCmHIiPuiwQXntJ5Y-KOuc0/edit?hl=en_US [Broken]

Is their a way of determining if the formula has any merit?
