Scatter Plots Graph the (x,y) pairs as a  single coordinate point.   It is  the point where x and y  intersect on the graph.  There  is only 1 point for every  ordered pair. Visually inspect the graph to  determine if there appears to  be a linear relationship;  although other relationships  Cereal Analysis (Sugar to Calories) 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 0 5 10 15 20 25 30 Sugar (grams) Calories (per serving) y = 0.6987x + 20791 R 2 = 0.2219 r = 0.55226
