Continued from the exercise "NBA, Athlete Performance and Linear Equations (2)".
You are doing a survey with some of the best teams in NBA (score!). This time, you are looking into whether more regular team dinners have an effect on team scoring. You are guessing that team dinners have a positive effect on team chemistry, but you want some data to prove it.
You find that on average, teams who have 6 team dinners each month score 86 points. Teams who have 8 team dinners each month have an average score of 92 points.
1) Complete the following linear equation to model the relationship between x
, number of team dinners each month and y
, the team score.y
2) Explain what the slope means in the equation above.
