The Attempt at a Solution
i usually have an equation to go by, but i do not in this case.
all attempts to make an equation out of the data have failed.
i think it is an exponential curve, but i can find the exact formula.
if anyone could stear me in the direction so i can figure this problem out.
i want to know what i'm doing, so do not give me the answer but please someone point me in some productive direction.
would i just input the numbers in the slope equation?
i have the x and y already.
that seems too easy.
