Wow, bonus... this question already tells
us what figure we need to look at.
So if we scooch our eyeballs over to Figure 2...
...we can see that the predicted birth dates are pretty darn close to the actual birthdates...
...so we're looking for the year that's closest to 1980.
Out of all four answer choices, 1982 is the closest, so D is the right answer.
If we want to get fancy, the graph even shows us that the predicted values seem to be slightly
higher than the actual values.
And if we want to get really fancy...
...we can meet up tonight at Red Lobster. We call dibs on the Cheddar Bay Biscuits.
