The table shows the amount of milk that Wisconsin dairy farms produced from 1939 to 1962. Which linear model best fits this data?
Year Milk Produced(in billions of lbs.)
1939 12
1962 15
2005 21
y = 0.142x – 6.38
y = 0.142x + 6.38
y = 6.38x + 0.142
y = –0.142x + 6.38

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i dont think it would be able to do this question because ju have to go to this stat thing and plug in the years and stuff then ju could get the equation cuz its that easy with a graphing calc.. but none of the online ones have it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well the values of the milk produced is increasing to the slope must be positive. That eliminates the last choice... I am a little confused. Is that third value supposed to be 2005 ? 2005 is not between 1939 and 1962.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, I suppose it does not matter. After some guess and check, the equations only fit the data if we assume years are written as 39 62 105 Then a linear regression is y = 0.136x + 6.609 which is closest to choice B

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1But unless we know that ahead of time, none of the equations would be best fit...
