Representation Type 

Choose the representation type of the trend line:

  • Linear

A linear trendline is a best-fit straight line that is used with simple linear data sets. 

  • Power

A power trendline is a curved line that is best used with data sets that compare measurements that increase at a specific rate.

  • Exponential

An exponential trendline is a curved line that is most useful when data values rise or fall at increasingly higher rates. You cannot create an exponential trendline if your data contains zero or negative values.

  • Logarithmic

A logarithmic trendline is a best-fit curved line that is most useful when the rate of change in the data increases or decreases quickly and then levels out. A logarithmic trendline can use negative and/or positive values.

  • Polynomial
A polynomial trendline is a curved line that is used when data fluctuates. It is useful, for example, for analyzing gains and losses over a large data set.
