    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!
