Date: 2 t g 2“ Group Number “Modeling by Linear Regression” 1. An ecologist observes that in a certain region the deer population seems to be decreasing. The
' table and scatter plot show the deer population every two years dating back to 1990. Let y be the
number of deer in this regionx years after January 1, 1990. Y i X r

-- - a) Use the calculator to ﬁnd a liner regression model for the (Jay) data. Write this equation
with the y—intercept rounded to the nearest whole number. y: ~8.%S‘x + m. For all remaining parts of this question, use the rounded-off version of the equation in part a). b) Use the regression equation to ﬁnd the x—intercept of the graph. Then sketch the portion of the
graph (3 line segment) from the y-intercept to the x-intercept on the ﬁgure above. Label both
intercepts on the sketch as ordered pairs. ' To ism! 0m ><~'m+erce§>+) lei” Yuri-0.
