The table gives the number of calories and the amount of cholesterol for selected fast food hamburgers. a. Graph the data in a scatter plot using the number of calories as the independent variable x and the amount of cholesterol as the dependent variable y. b. Use the data points (480, 60) and (720, 90) to write a linear function that defines the amount of cholesterol c(x) as a linear function of the number of calories x. c. Interpret the meaning of the slope in the context of this problem. d. Use the model from part (b) to predict the amount of cholesterol for a hamburger with 650 calories.

Question
The table gives the number of calories and the amount of cholesterol for selected fast food hamburgers.
a. Graph the data in a scatter plot using the number of calories as the independent variable x and the amount of
cholesterol as the dependent variable y.
b. Use the data points (480, 60) and (720, 90) to write a linear function that defines the amount of cholesterol c(x) as a
linear function of the number of calories x.
c. Interpret the meaning of the slope in the context of this problem.
d. Use the model from part (b) to predict the amount of cholesterol for a hamburger with 650 calories.
