(a) Construct a scatter plot for this data. (Either by hand or using Excel)
(b) Comment on the shape.
(c) Find a line of best fit.  If doing this by hand, you will need to find the line of best fit by eye and then find the equation.  If using excel, use a formula(s) to find the line of best fit.
(d) Using the equation, what was/is the atmospheric CO2 in 2005, 1920, 2020?  Comment on the accuracy of your answers.
(e) In your conclusion, comment on the accuracy of modeling this as a straight line given your graph.  Consider the accuracy to determine past and present values for CO2.

problem)Forensic Science – Bone Lengths

Forensic Scientists can estimate the height of deceased people from the length of a few key bones.
Heights can be determined from the length of the humerus, (the bone that extends from the elbow to the shoulder) using the equations:
For males: H= 3.08h + 70.45, For females H=3.36h + 57.97

Where H is the height of the deceased and h is the length of the humerus in cm.
Heights can also be estimated from the length of the tibia, (the larger bone that extends from just below the kneecap to the ankle) using the equations:
For males: H=2.42t + 81.93, for females H=2.9t + 61.53

Where H is the height of the deceased and t is the length of the tibia in cm.
Heights can also be estimated from the length of the ulna, (the larger bone that extends from the elbow to the hand) using the equations:

For males: H=3.7u + 70.45, for females H=4.27u + 57.76

Where H is the height of the deceased and u is the length of the ulna in cm.
What is the height of the person and are they male or female?

Complete the following:
(a) A tibia of length 32 cm is found in a burial site, find the person’s height? (the sex is unknown)
(b)A collection of bones is found where the humerus = 34cm, tibia = 38.5cm and ulna = 28.3cm.  Was this person a male or female

Based on your height, what will the length of your humerus, tibia and ulna be?

82000     86000     87000     94000     97000

Which tyre gives the longest life?
(a) Draw a side by side box and whisker plot to determine the answer. (Hint: arrange the data in a back to back stem and leaf plot first)

problem 4   Household Water Use
1. This is a roof plan (from above) of a house.

2018_roof plan.jpg

(a)During a recent rainy day, 72 mm of rain was recorded.  find out how many litres of water will be collected from the roof and stored in the water tank. Remember  1cm3 = 1mL or 1m3 = 1kL(1000L)
The volume V of water in the tank, initially full, remaining after (d) days is given by the equation:
         V=10 000-235 d

(b)     How much is left from a full tank after 30 days of no rain?
(c)     From the equation, determine how many litres of water the tank holds when full.
(d)     From the equation, determine how many litres of water the householders use per day
(e)     When will the volume of the tank be reduced to 2500 litres?

problem 5 Break-even analysis
A tourist coach company offers a daily (week days) tour from Bryon Bay to Lismore and return. People taking the tour are supplied lunch
The company puts a weekly advertisement in the local paper costing $120.
Pc = $120.00

Each passenger is charged $45 (including lunch) for the return journey.
Ep=$45.00

The fuel cost and other running costs total $45 per trip.
F=$45.00

The driver’s wage is $120 per trip.
Dw=$120.00

Lunch cost is $14 per person
L=$14.00

Outlay = Pc=$120c a week, F=$45, Dw=$120= $299.00 Each trip costs= $285
Variable =, Lunch=$14
Income = Per passage Ep=$45 ($30)
P=$120+$120+$45=$285

If clients pay $45 and this cost is called $31 then this removes the variable in the equation of the $14 for lunch.
10 clients per trip to make a profit
The company would like to make a profit on a weekly basis even though some individual trips might operate at a loss.

(a) From the information given, plot the graphs of revenue and cost and find the number of passengers required per week to break even.
(b) Ideally the company would like to make $1000 profit per week, find out the number of passengers required to make this happen. 
(c) What is the maximum profit possible if the bus can hold a maximum of 20 passengers per trip?
