The population, P (in thousands), of Wyoming from 2009 through 2013 are shown in the table.
(a) Use a graphing utility to create a scatter plot of the data with t = 9 corresponding to 2009.
(b) Use the regression feature of the graphing utility to find a linear model for the data.
(c) Use the graphing utility to plot the data and graph the model in the same viewing window.
(d)Create a table showing the ACTUAL values of P and the values of P given by the MODEL. How closely does the model fit the data?
(e)Use the model to predict the population of Wyoming in 2050. Does the result seem reasonable? Explain.
