Step 1

(a) Let us align the input data so that t = 0 in 1970.

Step 2

The logistic model is shown below:  help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseLead, f (million tons) Year 0 220.9 159.7 5 -200 72.4 10 15 22.9 20 5 25 3.9 a 1 b x 10 20 15 STATISTICS RESIDUALS RMSE-0 e plot PARAMETERS 0 b 0.136863 a 0 t 0.288073 fullscreen
