Do the Modeling Using Residuals Activity Lab on page 244 of your textbook.
You have learned that there is more than one model for a set of data. You can look at the y-values
on the calculator to determine which model is better. When you find these differences, you are
looking at the residuals. Residuals that are closer to zero will represent the better model!
Work through the 5 steps in the activity with your graphing calculator. You should see that for this
particular problem, the quadratic model is the best.

Use your graphing calculator to work through activities 1, 2, and 3. Do only problems 1 – 15.
Modeling Using Residuals
FOR USE WITH LESSON 5-1
You can use more than one model for a set of data. You can
determine which is a better model by analyzing the differences
between the y-values of the data and the y-values of each model.
These differences are called residuals. The better model will have
residuals that are closer to zero.

a quadratic model for the data below. Which model better
fits the data?

Step 1 Press STAT ENTER to enter the data in L, and L2. Then use the LinReg and
QuadReg features to find linear and quadratic models.
Step 2 Enter the linear model as Y, and the quadratic model as Y2.
Step 3 To find the residuals of the linear model and store the differences in L3,
11 ( LD STO L3 ENTER
Step 4 Find the residuals of the quadratic
model. Store the differences in L4.
Step 5 Compare the residuals in L3 and L4.
The values in L4 are closer to zero, so
the quadratic model is the better fit.
For each set of data, find a linear model and a quadratic model. Which model is the
better fit? Justify your reasoning.

Activity Lab Modeling Using Residuals
FOR USE WITH LESSON 5-8
You can solve quadratic inequalities using graphs, tables, and algebraic methods.
Indeed, the most effective way may be a combination of methods.
To find which of x2 – 12 or 3x + 6 is greater, enter the two functions as
Y and Y2 in your graphing calculator, you could use the TABLE option to
compare the two functions for various values of x, as shown below.

Y1 EX2 – 12
Y2 E 3X + 6

1. For which values of x in the table is x2 – 12 > 3x + 6?
2. For which values of x in the table is x2 – 12 < 3x + 6? 3. Does this table tell you all values of x for which x2 - 12 < 3x + 6? Explain. 4. In the TBLSET (TABLE SETUP) menu, change TblStart to -9 and ATbl to 3. Display the table again. Does the table with this setup give you more information? Why? You can compare functions more efficiently by making one side of the inequality 0. 5. Show that x2 - 12 < 3x + 6 is equivalent to x2 – 3x – 18 < 0. 6. Enter x2 – 3x – 18 as Yz in your graphing calculator. Place the cursor on the = sign after Y1 and press ENTER .This operation turns off the display of the equation Y1. Turn off Y2 as well, and then display the table. You will see the screen shown at the right. For which values of x in the table is x2 – 3x - 18 Purchase answer to see full attachment
