4). 3 shows a scatter plot of the data. The graph is called a time series because it shows changes over time. S. S. population grew quite steadily for one hundred years, from 1850 to 1950. Although the median age decreased between 1950 and 1970, since 1970 it has continued to increase. From 1850 to the present, the median age nearly doubled, and projections for 2025 and 2050 indicate continued increases, though at a slower pace. Constructing a “60-Second Summary” To communicate effectively, you need to describe your ideas succinctly and clearly.

When a function is described in these various ways, each description provides the same information but with a different emphasis. 06. 11 S O L U T I O N Using words The sales tax is 6% of the purchase price, which means you multiply the purchase price by six hundredths to get the sales tax. 06 ? ” The equation represents T as a function of P, since for each value of P the equation determines a unique (one and only one) value of T. The purchase price, P, is restricted to dollar amounts greater than or equal to zero.
