question; you research the average cost of a tank of gasoline for a certain type of car for several recent years to look for trends. the table shows your data. what is the equation for a line of best fit? how much would you expect to pay for a tank of gas in the year 2024?
Table;
1998 2000 2002 2004 2006
\$26.10 \$28.50 \$30.30 \$29.70 \$32.50

2008
\$37.70

a)y=26.10x+0.944;\$62.65
b)y=26.10x+0.944;\$50.65
c)y=0.944x+26.10;\$50.65
d)y=0.944x+26.10;\$62.25
