Question

A transportation engineer wants to determine the number of vehicles that drive through an intersection on a given day. The following table shows the total number of vehicles that drove through the intersection over a 10-hour period.

The transportation engineer determines that the linear function that best models the data is, y = -16.7333 + 52.7515x where y represents the total number of vehicles that drove through the intersection and x represents the number of hours. The following graph shows the residuals for this function.
