Mark and Jessica are each making a linear model to predict the population of squirrels in the town park. The are both using the same data points to find an equation of the line of best fit: the squirrel population, p, in 2002 and the squirrel population, q, in 2011. Mark is using the year as the xvalue, and he represents his data as (2002, p) and (2011, q). Jessica is using the years since 2000 as her xvalue, and she represents her data as (2, p) and (11, q). Which statement best describes how their prediction equations compare
