In Lab 3, you will measure the fluorescence of quinine for quinine solutions of various concentrations. You will fit this calibration data to a line. A recent study found that there is a linear relationship between the number of oil changes done per year and the costs (per year) for engine repairs. Ten customers were surveyed by a local mechanic and the following data was obtained. Oil changes per year Engine repair costs [dollars] 0 670 1 623 2 523 2 599 3 524 4 446 4 456 5 364 7 260 10 47 1. Using Excel, find the equation of the line that best describes the above data. There are two Excel approaches to carrying
