Unformatted text preview: Example 8.2.3 to fit a quadratic function to these data with the temperature, T , measured in degrees Fahrenheit, as the dependent variable, and the number of hours after 9 PM, t, measured in hours, as the independent variable. What was the coldest temperature of the night? When did it occur? 7. Use the technique in Example 8.2.3 to find the line between the points (−3, 4) and (6, 1). How does your answer compare to the slope-intercept form of the line in Equation 2.3? 8.
