6. (20 pts) Ted’s car has broken down and he needs it towed. A quick search reveals that two towing services offer the following arrangements:
Acme Towing: Pay a fee of $60.00, plus $2.50 per mile towed
or BeQuick: Pay a fee of $33.00, plus $4.00 per mile towed
(a) State a linear function f (x) that represents Acme Towing’s total charge for towing a vehiclexmiles.
(b) State a linear function g(x) that represents BeQuick Towing’s total charge for towing a vehiclexmiles.
(c) Ted needs to have his car towed 22 miles, as cheaply as possible. Which towing service should he choose? Show work/explanation.
(d) For what distance towed is the total towing charge exactly the same for both towing services? Show algebraic work/explanation.
(e) Fill in the blanks:
The BeQuick towing service is the cheaper option if the vehicle is towed _____( than______ miles.

(g) State the interval(s) on which the function is decreasing. That is, for what xvalues 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 http://www.indexmundi.com/facts/unitedstates/lifeexpectancyatbirth 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 r^{2} 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 realworld 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?
