The slope in the average growth in the number of pairs per year.
2. Interpret the slope of the line you found in Problem 1.
Write it out using the m and b from you calculator, they are correct
3. According to your model how many pairs of bald eagles were there in
When I used calculator : y= 6449.4
y = 326.3 2000 - 646150.6 = 6449.4
You need to solve the equation:
4. According to your model, when will there be 10,000 pairs of bald eagles?
10000 = 326.3 y - 646150.6
for the year y for this.
The model gives:
5. In 1963, there were 417 pairs of bald eagles. How well does the function
in Problem 1 model the data for that year?
326.3 1963 - 646150.6 = -5623.7
for the number of pairs in 1963, which is absurd, and a poor fit with the
