The given data show the result of a model known as stopping sight distance, used by civil engineers to design roadways. This simple model estimates the distance a driver needs in order to stop his or her car, traveling at a certain speed, after detecting a hazard. Plot the data using engineering paper and incorporating the ideas discussed in this chapter.
