Homework Help: Graphing Help!

  1. May 8, 2005 #1
    hi,
    could anyone please advise me on hand-drawing a line graph (this is for a scientific lab) graphing the following values?
    X
    -2.92
    -3
    -3.09
    -3.22
    -3.40
    Y
    -0.86
    -0.91
    -1.02
    -1.15
    -1.28

    My teacher said he wanted the values to fill the page, but to still be able to see the y-intercept. I'm not sure how to do this :S Can anybody help please?

    Looks like you need to draw a graph of the lower lower left quadrant of the x-y plane (i.e. the part with negative x and y values).

    Possibly, you'll also need some of the upper left quadrant, too, depending on where the y intercept is. I assume you're aiming to draw a line of best fit for your data...
