A) Horsepower is the independent variable
D) The scatter plot shows a negative correlation
Independent variable goes on the x-axis, it does not depend on another.
In this case, horsepower is the independent variable.
Negative correlation is a relationship between two variables in which one variable increases as the other decreases.
In this case, the scatter plot shows a negative correlation.
This will give you the responses of the functions.
The x values arent the responses.
The line of best fit the equation of line in y=mx+b where m is the slope and bis the y-intercept. It is the line that best approximates the behavior of the data. Here m is referred to as a. B is referred to as b. So m = -2.9 and b = 13.5. The line is y=-2.9x+13.5.
using the two points, you can find the slop using rise over run. For every two up, you go three over to the left. Your slope is -2/3, which means the only possible answer is B
C. For each bolt the number of cracks decreased by an average of 1/2.
Consider the points (2, 8) and (8, 5) on the line.
The number of cracks decreased from 8 to 5 while the number of bolts increased from 2 to 8. Thats a ratio of -3 : 6, which supports choice C.
I believe than answer is A make sure tho im only in 6 th grade
it is b
My answer was deleted for some reason, but you answer is f(x) so "c".
The answer is C. As X goes to negative infinity, the graph keeps on rising. As X goes to positive infinity, the graph goes down.
