Recall the data on disk drives we saw in chapter 6 exercise 4. Suppose we want to predict Price from
a) Find the slope estimate, b1.
b) What does it mean, in this context?
c) Find the intercept, b0.
d) What does it mean, in this context? Is it meaningful?
e) Write down the equation that predicts Price from Capacity.
f) What would you predict for the price of a 20 TB drive?
