¡! the total square footage of mini storage units being rented in a city is graphed to forecast future demand. the scatter plot has a trend line =0.538+9.02 y = 0 . 538 x + 9 . 02 , where x = 0 is the year 2005 and y is the total area rented (in ten thousand square feet) of all mini storage units in the city. if the total area rented continues to increase at the same rate, about how many square feet of mini storage units will be needed by the year 2018?
160,000 sq ft
2018 is 13 years after 2005.
Put x=13 in the equation and evaluate:
... y = 0.538·13 +9.02 = 6.994 +9.02 = 16.014
This is the number of 10,000 sq ft, so the required area is ...
... 16 times 10,000 sq ft = 160,000 sq ft.
the one that has a slope of 1/2 and is positive.
step-by-step explanation: 2 buckets 1 trip ; 4 buckets 2 trips and so on.
