Trend:A trend line, often referred to as a line of best fit, is a line that is used to represent the behavior of a set of data to determine if there is a certain pattern. A trend line is an analytical tool used most often in conjunction with a scatter plot (a two-dimensional graph of ordered pairs) to see if there is a relationship between two variables.

A line graph is obtained by using Excel and steps are as follows

Enter the given data in Excel sheet

select data(data column) go to insert
