For this project we had to find a topic that we were interested in graphing. It could have been increasing or decreasing so we could see the change through out the years. I Worked on the African Elephant population and how it decreased during the years weather it was because of natural deaths, food poisoning, habitats, but most of all poaching. I graphed the elephant population and I was surprised when I saw how low the elephant population in Africa is getting. and it gets lower every month.

After plotting the dots, calculating the lines of best fit, and finding the overall line of best fit we had to predict, in my case, how many elephants will there be in 2067 and how many elephants were in 2112. My graph shows negative numbers but as it is just a prediction it might not be true and on my graph it is certainty not true because according to my graph the numbers do not stop at that moment they even go up. It is predicted according to my line of best fit that in 2067 there will be -6,994,500 elephants which is obviously not true because there can't be a negative number of elephants. In 2112 according to my graph there will be -2,555,000 elephants which is again not possible. I found out these numbers by starting of at x axis with the year and following the line down.
