Unformatted text preview: than the actual jump. The model overestimated the actual result. • The model predicts y = 0.8465(104) + 263.6 = 351.6, which was 13.4 inches more than the actual jump. The model still overestimated the actual result. • The model predicts y = 0.8465(108) + 263.6 = 355.0 inches, which, considering the results from the last two predictions above, will probably be more than the actual jump distance. Going with the trend from the last predictions, this calculation will probably be about 15 inches more than the actual distance. • The model predicts y = 0.8465(200) + 263.6 = 432.9 inches, which does not sound reasonable, considering it would beat the (relatively current) 2004 gold medal distance by almost 8 feet....
