(b) State the x-intercept(s), if any.

 (c) State the y-intercept(s), if any.

 (d) State the domain of the piecewise function.

(e) State the range of the piecewise function.

(f) State the interval(s) on which the function is increasing. That is, for what x-values is the function increasing? 

(g) State the interval(s) on which the function is decreasing. That is, for what x-values is the function decreasing? 

9. (14 ptsLife expectancy at birth is the estimated lifespan of a baby born in a particular year (given the conditions of that time period).  Based on data retrieved from the following chart of U.S. life expectancy for females has been prepared.


The regression line is y = 0.151x  – 222.26, where x = birth year and y = U.S. female life expectancy, in years. The value of r2 is 0.9366.


(a)  Use the regression line to estimate the U.S. life expectancy of a female baby born in 1970, to the nearest tenth of a year. Show some work.

(b)  Use the regression line to estimate the U.S. life expectancy of a female baby born in 2016, to the nearest tenth of a year. Show some work.

(c)  What is the slope of the regression line and what are the units of measurement? In a sentence, interpret what the slope is telling us, in the context of this real-world application.

(d) What is the value of the correlation coefficient, r? Also, interpret its value: Looking at the graph and the size of r, do you judge the strength of the linear relationship to be very strong, moderately strong, somewhat weak, or very weak?
