Question 1 of 200.0/ 1.0 PointsDue to erosion, a river shoreline is losing several thousand pounds of soil each year. A linearequation that expresses the total amount of soil lost per year is y = 12,000x.How many pounds of soil does the shoreline lose in a year? Round to a whole number. Don't useany commas or decimals.
Question 2 of 201.0/ 1.0 PointsWhich of the following equations are linear?
D.y-x=8x2Answer Key:BFeedback:A linear equation is a linear line. If a problem has a squared or a cubed term, it isn't linear. It is aquadratic equation.Part 2 of 9 - Multiple Linear Regression3.0/ 4.0 PointsQuestion 3 of 201.0/ 1.0 PointsWith Obesity on the rise, a Doctor wants to see if there is a linear relationship between the Ageand Weight and estimating a person's Systolic Blood Pressure. Interpret the slope(s) of thesignificant predictors for Systolic BP (if there are any).See Attached Excel for Data.BP data.xlsx9 KBA.When you hold Weight constant, as Age increases by 1 year, your Systolic BP willincrease by 0.9388When you hold Age constant, as Weight increases by 1 pound, your Systolic BP willincrease by 0.3092B.When you hold Weight constant, as Age increases by 1 year, your Systolic BP willincrease by 4.0792When you hold Age constant, as Weight increases by 1 pound, your Systolic BP will
