Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I got y = 4.467x + 84.775 I think you might have used the wrong xvalues. Did you use the years, or 0, 2, 4, ... Are you doing this by hand?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh i used years that might have been the problem, I am using a ti84 and I did get y = 4.467x + 84.775 but I put y=4.467x8760.425 because I used the years.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I am just wondering why do you have to use 0, 2, 4, etc. instead of the years?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for ease basically. The data only starts from 1980, if you're resetting that as "year 0". Keeping the years makes the data look smaller
