Meg plotted the graph below to show the relationship between the temperature of her city and the number of sweaters sold at a store:
Main title on the graph is Sweater Sale. Graph shows 0 to 30 on x axis at increments of 5 and 0 to 12 on y axis at increments of 1. The label on the x axis is Temperature in degree C, and the label on the y axis is Number of Sweaters Sold. Dots are made at the ordered pairs 0, 12 and 2.5, 10 and 2.5, 11 and 5, 10 and 7.5, 9 and 7.5, 10 and 10, 7 and 12.5, 6 and 12.5, 8 and 15, 4 and 15, 7 and 17.5, 5 and 20, 1 and 20, 3 and 22.5, 9 and 25, 1 and 27.5, 1.
