in stats today, we took a big bag of m&ms, and took 5 samples from it.
So, i got the number in each sample, and then the #of blue ones in each sample. From that, we predicted the # total in the bag
For example...The sample I drew had 28 total, and 9 blue ones.
So then we did, 9/28=184/x
184 is the total # of blue in the bag.
For x, I got about 572.
So my teacher had 5 samples like this on the board. He then said to make an equation of best fit. Im confused on what the x and y variables should be.
