Make a scatterplot on graph paper and draw the line of best fit. Determine the equation of the line of best fit.

Place the Tired Behaviors on the

-axis and Test Score on the-axis for your scatterplot.The test score is

. The number of tired behaviors is.Using your equation from part (a), predict the test score of a student who exhibits

tired behaviors during Professor Saksunn’s math class in a week. Substituting

in for results in.
