SAT Scores by Income The following graph shown U.S. math SAT scores as a function of parents’ income level.81

images

Income ($1,000).

The regression curve shown is given by

f ( x ) = 0.0034 x 2 + 1.2 x + 444    ( 10 x 180 ) where f ( x ) is the average math SAT score of a student whose parents earn x thousand dollars per year. Compute and interpret f ( 30 ) .

To determine

To calculate: The value of f(30)

for the function f(x)=0.0034x2+1.2x+444, where f(x)

represents the average math SAT score of a student whose parents earn x thousand dollars per year, also interpret the answer and the graph which shows the U.S. math SAT scores as a function of parents income level is as follows:

Explanation

Given information:

The function f(x)=0.0034x2+1.2x+444, where f(x)

represents the average math SAT score of a student whose parents earn x thousand dollars per year.

The graph which shows the U.S. math SAT scores as a function of parents income level is as follows:

Formula used:

The difference quotient formula is used which is as follows:

f(x)=limh0f(x+h)f(x)h

The square of the sum formula,

(a+b)2=a2+b2+2ab

Calculation:

Consider the function f(x)=0.0034x2+1.2x+444, where f(x)

represents the average math SAT score of a student whose parents earn x thousand dollars per year.

The difference quotient formula used to estimate the exact value of derivative algebraically is:

f(a)=limh0f(a+h)f(a)h

Substitute a=30

into the above formula,

f(30)=limh0f(30+h)f(30)h

Substitute the values of f(30)

and f(30+h)

in f(x),

f(30)=limh0[0.0034(30+h)2+1
