Graphing Force and acceleration basics

This is for a pre-lab. I'm given three points for force and acceleration:

F(Newtons): 19.1, 24.5, 28.2
a(m/s^2): 127.2, 162.1, 185.9

Problem:
I'm supposed to relate y = mx + b to the equation F = ma
and I'm assuming then to use this to draw a line through the points.

instructor has: net force = m(sub T) * a + F(sub w)
i'm not sure what the m(sub T) is, it may even be (sub perpendicular)?

so far i only know that mass is the slope of the line, so i have m = (Fmax - Fmin)/(amax - amin)

if anyone know how i should go about this plz help me out.
