Best Fit 1

REMEMBER! Type data tables in STAT EDIT. Use 4:LinReg(ax+b) for line of best fit Use 5:QuadReg for curve or quadratic of best fit Dr. M looked at gas prices for the last 5 years. Write an equation for the line of best fit. y = 0.55x + 3.15 y = 3.15x + 0.55 y = 2.295x + 0.127 y = 0.127x + 2.295 Dr. M looked at gas prices for the last 5 years. Based on the line of best fit you found, what will be the price of gas in 10 years? $2.75 $3.57 $3.95 $4.15 Determine the quadratic curve of best fit for the data. Hint: Type x-values in one column & y-values in the other. Use 5:QuadReg {(-3, 2), (0, 5), (1, 7.3), (-1, 3.3), (-6, 5), (-7, 7.3)} y = .33x y = .33x y = .33x y = .33x Use the curve of best fit you found to estimate the value of y when x = -4. Hint: Plug -4 into x {(-3, 2), (0, 5), (1, 7.3), (-1, 3.3), (-6, 5), (-7, 7.3)} 8.91 2.28 3.45 6.78 Anna offered to buy lunch for everyone in GW. She investigated the cost of a catered lunch for different numbers of people. What is the equation for the line of best fit? y = 4.5x + 75 y = 5.15x + 125 y = 6.25x + 125 y = 7.85x + 250 Use the line of best fit you just found to estimate how much Anna will pay for lunch for 50 people.
