1. ## Solving Inequalities

You want to determine the relationship between an athlete’s weight x (in pounds) and the athlete’s maximum bench press weight y (in pounds).

Sample data from 12 athletes is shown below.

(165,170),(184,185),(150,200),(210,255),(196,205), (240,295),(202,190),(170,175),
(185,195),(190,185),(230,250),(160,150)

A model for this data is y = 1.3x – 36. Use the graph to write a statement about the accuracy of the model. If you think the graph indicates that an athlete’s weight is not a good indicator of the athlete’s maximum bench-press weight, list other factors that might influence an individual’s maximum bench-press weight.

The first part I know to answer. The second part, ie
If you think the graph indicates that an athlete’s weight is not a good indicator of the athlete’s maximum bench-press weight, list other factors that might influence an individual’s maximum bench-press weight.
I don't know.
Thanks

A couple of factors come to mind:

1. Sex: Male or female.

2. The type of sport the athlete trains for.

3. How long the athlete has been training for.

4. Age of athlete.

5. The diet of the athlete.

With regards to the second point (and possibly the fifth point), I believe darts players are now refered to as athletes .......
