In 2004, a school population was 1250. By 2012 the population had dropped to 875. Assume the population is changing linearly.
Draw a scatter plot for the data provided in [link] . Then determine whether the data appears to be linearly related.

For the following exercises, use [link] , which shows the percent of unemployed persons 25 years or older who are college graduates in a particular city, by year.
Year | 2000 | 2002 | 2005 | 2007 | 2010 |
Percent Graduates | 8.5 | 8.0 | 7.2 | 6.7 | 6.4 |
Determine whether the trend appears linear. If so, and assuming the trend continues, find a linear regression model to predict the percent of unemployed in a given year to three decimal places.

For the following exercises, consider this scenario: The population of a city increased steadily over a ten-year span. The following ordered pairs shows the population (in hundreds) and the year over the ten-year span, (population, year) for specific recorded years:
$(4,500,2000);(4,700,2001);(5,200,2003);(5,800,2006)$
Use linear regression to determine a function y , where the year depends on the population. Round to three decimal places of accuracy.
