$15,000 Find the equation of the best-ﬁt line (let x = 0 represent 2003 and let y represent the value of the car (in thousands)) and use
it to approximate when the car value will reach $8,500. How well does the line ﬁt the data? 16. Chris and Katie are going to a basketball game with eight of their friends. How many ways can they be seated in a row if Chris

and F independent events? 4 ...
