Q 2. The data in the table is from a study (reported in [2]) relating rate of oxygen consumption

`R`

to body weight

`W`

in fish. (a) Calculate the natural logarithms of the data (

`W`

and

`R`

) and hence plot the linearized data on the axes below. (b) Plot a straight line through the linearized data staying as close to the data points as possible. (c) Find the

`y`

-intercept

`c`

of this line from your graph and measure another point on the line as accurately as you can. Use these points to estimate

`m`

and

`c`

\table[[

`W(kg)`

,

`R(m(l)/(h)r)`
