In 2015, 43% of all "spear-phishing" cyberattacks against American businesses targeted "small" businesses.

a. (Multiple Choice) Which of the following linear equations could be used to predict annual percentage of all "spear-phishing" cyberattacks against US businesses that target "small" businesses ("y") in a given year "x" since 2011, where x = 0 represents the year 2011? Explain/show work separately.

1. y=0.16x+18
2. B. y = 0.16x + 2011
3. C. y=6.25x+18
4. D. y = 6.25x + 2011

b. Use the equation from part (a) to predict the percentage of all "spear-phishing" cyberattacks against US businesses that will target "small" businesses in the year 2019. Round answer to nearest tenth of a percent. Show work separately.

Enter answer rounded to nearest tenth (1 place a"er decimal). Do NOT include "%" sign

c. (Multiple choice - enter letter of correct statement) Choose which statement best interprets the slope of the linear regression equation you found in part (a)

A. 6.25% annual increase in percentage of all "spear-phishing" cyberattacks against US businesses that target "small" businesses

B. 6.25% annual decrease in percentage of all "spear-phishing" cybera%acks against US businesses that target "small" businesses

C. 0.16% annual increase in percentage of all "spear-phishing" cybera%acks against US businesses that target "small" businesses

D. 0.16% annual decrease in percentage of all "spear-phishing" cybera%acks against US businesses that target "small" businesses

a. The correct option is: 3. C. y= 6.25x+18  b. 68% of all "spear-phishing" cyberattacks... View the full answer
