... attempt an adjustment using a straight line


Explanation:
Not enough context. I imagine this would be "droite de tendence haussière" or something like that, in reference to a graph, but the sentence really does leave us in the dark.

a linear curve fitting might be applied to (volumes of sales)


Explanation:
"Fitting" is definitely the word to be used- correct term for statistical analyses.
You could also use "linear regression" but it might be too technical for your puprose.
