Which Function is Best: Linear, Exponential, or Quadratic?

Residual plots can help determine the most appropriate function for a data set. If the residual plot shows a definite curved pattern, then that function is not appropriate for the data. On the other hand, a randomly scattered residual plot can indicate an appropriate function.

Use the buttons to decide which function is best suited to this data.
