Answered step-by-step

To determine the average mass of a popcorn kernel you collect the following data:

$$\begin{array}{ll}

\hline \text { Number of kernels } & \text { Mass }(\mathrm{g}) \\

\hline 5 & 0.836 \\

12 & 2.162 \\

35 & 5.801 \\

\hline

\end{array}$$

Plot the data with number of kernels on the $x$ -axis and mass on the y-axis. Draw the best straight line using the points on the graph (or do a least-squares or linear regression analysis using a computer program) and then write the equation for the resulting straight line. What is the slope of the line? What does the slope of the line signify about the mass of a popcorn kernel? What is the mass of 50 popcorn kernels? How many kernels are there in a handful of popcorn $(20.88 \mathrm{g}) ?$

My course ends next week and Numerade is a great learning site. It didnt just give me the answers, but more importantly it taught me how to solve similar problems I’ve learned a lot and if I have tough courses in the future Ill definitely choose Numerade
