    Welcome to PF,

    You must show some work in this problem. You must make an attempt. Please read the PF rules on homework help.

    As far as the the problem goes: what do YOU think? What does the origin of the graph represent, physically?

    Also, a best fit line is only relevant if you have some actual measured data that you are trying to fit.
