## Intermediate Algebra: Connecting Concepts through Application

Option $\text{a}$
Recall: When creating a scatterplot, the following settings must be followed: $X_{\text{min}}$ should be slightly lower than the lowest $x$-value $X_{\text{max}}$ should be slightly higher than the highest $x$-value $Y_{\text{min}}$ should be slightly lower than the lowest $y$-value $Y_{\text{max}}$ should be slightly higher than the highest $y$-value The given data has the following characteristics: lowest $x$ value is $2.25$ and maximum is $2.28$; lowest $y$ value is $120$ and maximum is $150$ Therefore, the best scatterplot display will be given by the settings in Option $\text{a}$.
