Television Set Pricing: A retail store has various sizes of television sets made by the same manufacturer. The price for a set is a function of the screen size, measured in inches along the diagonal. Suppose that the prices are x (in.) p(x) (dollars)2 1605 1007 12012 25017 22021 20027 34032 68035 1100 a. Make a scatter plot of the data. Based on the scatter plot, tell why a quartic function is a more appropriate mathematical model than a cubic function. b. Find the particular equation of the best-fitting quartic function, p(x). Plot function p on the same screen as the scatter plot. c. Based on the quartic model, which size television set is most overpriced? d. What real-world reason can you think of to explain why 17- and 21-in. sets are less expensive than the smaller, 12-in. set?
