Find the quadratic equation of best fit for the given data. Round to 3 decimals. d. Find the correlation coefficient “r” correct to 4 decimal places for part c. e. Use the values of “r” to determine which equation, linear from part a or quadratic from part c, is a better fit for the given data. f. Use the equation of best fit found in part e to estimate the drug amount to the nearest tenth after 10 hours has passed. 2.
