Question: Wisconsin is an important milk producing state Some people might argue

Wisconsin is an important milk-producing state. Some people might argue that because of transportation costs, the cost of milk increases with the distance of markets from Wisconsin. Suppose the milk prices in eight cities are as follows.
Cost of Milk Distance from Madison
(Per gallon) ... (Miles)
$2.64 ....... 1,245
2.31 ....... 425
2.45 ....... 1,346
2.52 ....... 973
2.19 ....... 255
2.55 ....... 865
2.40 ....... 1,080
2.37 ....... 296

Use the prices along with the distance of each city from Madison, Wisconsin, to develop a regression line to predict the price of a gallon of milk by the number of miles the city is from Madison. Use the data and the regression equation to compute residuals for this model. Sketch a graph of the residuals in the order of the x values. Comment on the shape of the residual graph.
