Graph C

Work Step by Step

The graph represented by the data is Graph C because Graph A shows a constant decrease in the amount of sunscreen and reaching 0 oz after 4 uses which isn't the case as the amount of suncreen is decreasing at a rate of 0.2 oz per use. Graph B is not correct as it showing that the amount of sunscreen is decreasing exponentially at a very rapid rate which isn't true because it is decreasing at 0.2 oz per use. Therefore, Graph C is the best representation of data as it shows a constant a decrease in the amount of sunscreen and the representation looks more appropriate because in both graphs the amount of sunscreen goes to 0z after only 4 uses which isn't the case.
