Question

A student is assessing the correlation between the number of hours a plant receives sunlight and the height to which it grows. The table shows the data: Number of hours of sunlight (x) 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Height of plant in cm (y) 4 7 10 13 16 19 22 25 28 31 Part A: Is there any correlation between the number of hours of sunlight that a plant receives and the height to which it grows? Justify your answer. (4 points) Part B: Write a function that best fits the data. (3 points) Part C: What does the slope and y-intercept of the plot indicate about the plant? (3 points)

## Answers ( )

Part A:

Yes, there is a direct correlation between amount of sunlight received and growth, this can be observed by the constant increase of 3 inches as the plant receives an hour more of sunlight.

Part B:

y= 3x+4

Part C:

The y-intercept of the plot indicates that the plant started at 4cm and the slope indicates that with each hour of sunlight that the plant receives, the plant grows another 3 inches.
