(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

We rolled a ball down a ramp and timed the time it took to cover a certain distance (15cm, 30cm, 45cm, 60cm, 75cm, 90cm, 105cm, 120cm.) we input the data into a graph (x= time (s^2), y= distance (m)) my partner and I understand that the slope is the 1/2 of the acceleration, but we don't understand how to explain/prove the slope is 1/2 of a.

any help would be greatly appreciated!
