For Questions 12, use the following. Scooters are often used in European and Asian cities because of their ability to negotiate crowded city streets. The number of scooters (in thousands) sold each year in India can be approximated by the function N=61.86t2237.43t+943.51 where f is the number of years since 1990. 1. Find the vertical intercept. What is the practical meaning of the vertical intercept in this situation? 2. Use a numerical method to find the year when the number of scooters sold reaches 1 million. (Note that 1 million is 1,000 thousand, so N=1000) Show three rows of the table you used to support your answer and write a clear answer to the problem.

Step 1

Given function N=61.86t2237.43t+943.51 1) For finding the vertical intercept, put t=0 N=61.86(0)2237.43(0)+943.51
N=943.51 The practical meaning of the vertical intercept in this situation is: Whent=0, that is in 1990, the number of scooters sold in India =943 (approximately). 2) When N=1000, the equation becomes, 61.86t2237.43t+943.51=1000 Solving using bisection method, f(t)=61.86t2237.43t+943.511000 =61.86t2237.43t56.49

Step 2

f(1)=61.86+237.4356.49=242.8
f(0)=56.49
f(1)=61.86237.4356.49=232.06 Since f(1)>0 and f(0)<0, zero of the function lies between -1 and 0. Take t1=1+02=12=0.5 f(0.5)=15.465+118.71556.49
=77.69>0 Thus root lies between -0.5 and 0 Take t2=0.5+02=0.25
f(0.25)=3.86+59.3656.49
=6.73>0

Step 3

Thus root lies between -0.25 and 0 Take t3=0.25+02=0.125
f(0.125)=0.96+29.6956.49
=25.84<0 na(negative)b(positive)t=a+b2f(t) 1100.577.6920.500.256.7330.2500.12525.84

Root here lies between -0.25 and -0.125. Thus root lies between 0.250.1252=0.1875.

Lemons and Car Crashes Listed below are annual data for various years. The data are weights (metric tons) of lemons imported from Mexico and U.S. car crash fatality rates per 100,000 population [based on data from “The Trouble with QSAR (or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Embrace Fallacy),” by Stephen Johnson, Journal of Chemical Information and Modeling, Vol. 48, No. 1]. Is there sufficient evidence to conclude that there is a linear correlation between weights of lemon imports from Mexico and U.S. car fatality rates? Do the results suggest that imported lemons cause car fatalities? \(\begin{array}{|c|c|}Lemon\ imports &230&265&368&480&630\\ Crash\ Fatality\ Rate&159&157&15.3&15.4&14.9\end{array}\)
