# Find an equation of a line that comes close to the points listed in the table. X|y 6|8 10|13 12|15 16|18 18|21

$y=x+2\\x=6\to y=6+2=8\\x=10\to y=10+2=12\\x=12\to y=12+2=14\\x=16\to y=16+2=18\\x=18\to y=18+2=20\\-----------------------\\y=x+3\\x=6\to y=6+3=9\\x=10\to y=10+3=13\\x=12\to y=12+3=15\\x=16\to y=16+3=19\\x=18\to y=18+3=21\\-----------------------\\Answer:y=x+1.5$
