PROF. PORTER STUDENT NAME:___________________________

 

 

  1. What is this course all about?

 

 

Can you think of three different ways that you can describe f(x)?

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Suppose you are trying to sell some lemonade. If you discover that 200 cups sell at 25 cents, and 500 cups sell at 10 cents, then use a linear relationship to describe the number of cups N you can sell given the price P?

(leave the equation in point -slope or slope intercept form)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Answer:_________________________

 

  1. Suppose that you also find that you can sell 1000 cups at 5 cents. Combined with the sales figures in the problem above, find the linear regression that fits all three sales points.
