For the following exercises, consider this scenario: The profit of a company decreased steadily over a ten-year span. The following ordered pairs shows dollars and the number of units sold in hundreds and the profit in thousands of over the ten-year span, (number of units sold, profit) for specific recorded years:

( 46 , 1 , 600 ) , ( 48 , 1 , 55 0 ) , ( 50 , 1 , 505 ) , ( 52 , 1 , 54 0 ) , ( 54 , 1 , 495 ) .

Use linear regression to determine a function P where the profit in thousands of dollars depends on the number of units sold in hundreds.

Real-world applications

For the following exercises, consider this scenario: The population of a city increased steadily over a ten-year span. The following ordered pairs shows the population and the year over the ten-year span, (population, year) for specific recorded years:

( 25 00 , 2000 ) , ( 265 0 , 2001 ) , ( 3000 , 2003 ) , ( 35 00 , 2006 ) , ( 42 00 , 2010 )

Use linear regression to determine a function y , where the year depends on the population. Round to three decimal places of accuracy.
