Nonlinear Regression Lab M & M Trial # 1 2 3 4 5 6 M&M's 5 1. Start with five M&M’s in a cup. Shake the cup and pour the M&M’s onto a plate. Count the number of M&M’s that have the M showing. Add a new M&M for each piece of candy with an M showing. Record the new total number of M&M’s in the table above. Using the new total of M&M’s each time, repeat the procedure five more times. 2. Find the best transformation for a linear regression of the data. 3. Use your regression to predict the number of M&M’s on trial #9. 4. Use the equation to predict the number of trials needed to have 300 M&M’s. Intensity Depth Diving 1. Go to computer and collect data for light intensity at different depths (at least 6). 2. Find the best transformation for a linear regression of the data. 3. If you wanted to reach a depth in which the light intensity was 0.34, how far below the water’s surface would you have to go?
