You can use a calculator to complete the table, as shown at the left. b. 27. From the graph, you can estimate that a height of 71 inches corresponds to a weight of about 161 pounds. 27 c. To confirm algebraically the estimate found in part (b), you can substitute 71 for x in the model. 70 So, the graphical estimate of 161 pounds is fairly good. Now try Exercise 87. com for worked-out solutions to odd-numbered exercises. VOCABULARY: Fill in the blanks. 1.
