Introduction

This graph show the year 10s height (X axes) plotted against the weight (Y axes). From this graph you can see it has a positive correlation and most of the results are close to the line of best fit. However you can see one result is a lot heavier that what the line of best fit says. For the person of 1.54 metres in height, the person should weight 50 kilograms when in fact he weights 66 kilograms.
