cause its going up by little
We know that a scatter plot is used to study to variables and see if they have some dependent relation, which is shown with a straight line. So, our job is to find the straight line that includes the major number of given points.
To have the best prediction possible, we draw a line that best fits to all points included in the scatter plot, as the image attached shows. There you can observe that the best prediction for 40 highway mpg is 35, because the red line shows that it must be between 30 and 40.
Therefore, the answer that best fits is B) 35.
i took the test
The best prediction will be B) 35
By looking at the scatterplot ,
we can see that it the City MPG vs Highway MPG approximately falls on a straight line.
we can either find the slope of it ( which might be a little out of syllabus ) or we can extend the line connecting the maximum number of points.
When we do so, We get a line as attached in the diagram.
And we extend it.
From the graph attached we find that the value of City MPG falls somewhere in between the lines of 30 and 35 ( though this is just and approximation).
thus the more appropriate answer would be : 35
it would be see because your formula is f(x)=6x, so 6 times 1 is 6 and you go on and the best answer is c.
