5 NONLINEAR MODELS - For the latter part of the quiz, we will explore some nonlinear models. 9. (16 pts) QUADRATIC REGRESSION Data: On a particular summer day, the outdoor temperature was recorded at 8 times of the day, and the following table was compiled. A scatterplot was produced and the parabola of best fit was determined. t = Time of day (hour) y = Outdoor Temperature (degrees F.) 7 52 9 67 11 73 13 76 14 78 17 79 20 76 23 61 Quadratic Polynomial of Best Fit: y = 0.3476 t 2 + 10.948 t 6.0778 where t = Time of day (hour) and y = Temperature (in degrees) REMARKS: The times are the hours since midnight. For instance, 7 means 7 am, and 13 means 1 pm. (a) Using algebraic techniques we have learned, find the maximum temperature predicted by the quadratic model and find the time when it occurred. Report the time to the nearest quarter hour (i.e., __:00 or __:15 or __:30 or __:45). (For instance, a time of 18.25 hours is reported as 6:15 pm.) Report the maximum temperature to the nearest tenth of a degree. Show algebraic work. (b) Use the quadratic polynomial to estimate the outdoor temperature at 7:30 am, to the nearest tenth of a degree. (work optional) y = -0.3476t 2 + 10.948t - 6.0778 R² = 0.9699 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 0 4 8 12 16 Temperature (degrees) Time of Day (hour) Temperature on a Summer Day 20 24
