Problem Solving with Linear Models

Key Questions

  • Answer:

    extrapolate the data in a linear manner to predicate a value


    For example making a graph of temperature vs volume can be used to predict a value for absolute zero. The linear line can be extended to find a predicted value for the temperature where there is zero volume. The place on the line where volume is zero would be predict value for absolute zero.
