After creating a scatter plot, you notice that all the points on the plot lie along a horizontal line. This means that: A. the data set has a positive trend. B. the data set has a negative trend. C. all the x-values in the data are the same. D. all the y-values in the data are the same.
Answer: option D. all the y-values in the data are the same. Remember that the vertical axis is the y-axis. If you have a horizontal line it means that the slope of the line is zero and the function is of the kind y = constant. This is, no matter what the value of x is, the value of y is always the same (the constant).
