The given rule of thumb is that pets age seven times faster than people. The most common pets are dogs and cats.
a. Consider the data below on cat ages versus human ages. Is there a relationship between cat ages and human ages? Comment on the strength. Calculate the equation for the line of best fit.What is the average rate of change for cats?
b. Consider the data below on dog ages versus human ages. Is there a relationship between dog ages and human ages? Comment on the strength. Calculate the equation for the line of best fit.What is the average rate of change for dogs?
c. By age 7, most dogs, particularly larger breeds, are entering their senior years. Do the data support this statement? Why and how?
