Question:
Doug's biology experiment involved timing 12 hamsters in a maze. Each hamster received at least one practice before being timed. The scatterplot shows the time each hamster took to complete the maze and the corresponding number of practices that each hamster received. Based on the data, which of the following functions best models the relationship between t, the number of seconds to complete the maze, and p, the number of practices?

a. t(p) = 44
b. t(p) = p
c. t(p) = 44p
d. t(p) = p/44
e. t(p) = p + 44

THANK YOU
