**Math 1010 Intermediate Algebra Group Project
**

According to data from the U.S. Census Bureau, Population Division, the population of Utah

appears to have increased linearly over the years from 1980 to 2008. The following table shows

the population in 100,000’s living in Utah according to year. In this project, you will use the

data in the table to find a linear function f (x) that represents the data, reflecting the change in

population in Utah.

1. Using the graph paper on the last page, plot the data given in the table as ordered pairs.

Label the x and y axes with words to indicate what the variables represent.

2. Use a straight edge to draw on your graph what appears to be the line that “best fits” the

data you plotted. You will only have one line drawn, rather than several pieces of lines

3. Estimate the coordinates of two points that fall on your best-fitting line. Write these

points below.

( , ), ( , )

Use the points that you wrote down to find a linear function f(x) for the line. Show your

work!

f(x) = _____________________

4. What is the slope of your line? m = ________

Interpret its meaning. Does it make sense in the context of this situation? Please use

complete sentences to respond to these questions.

5. Find the value of f (45) using your function from part 3. Show your work, then write your

result in the blank below.

f(45) = _________

Write a sentence interpreting the meaning of f (45) in the context of this project.

6. Use your function from part 3 to approximate in what year the residential population of

Utah reached 2,000,000. Show your work.

7. Compare your linear function with that of another student or group.

Comparison function: f(x) = ______________________

Is the comparison function the same as the function you wrote down for part 3?

If they are different, explain why.

If they are the same, explain why.

8. In actuality, using a linear growth model for population is not common. Most models are

exponential models, due to the fact that most populations experience relative growth, i.e.

2% growth per year. Linear models for nonlinear relationships like population work only

within a small time frame valid close to the time of the data modeled. Discuss some of

the false conclusions you might reach if you use your linear model for times far from

1980-2008.
