Problem 15E

The article “Some Parameters of the Population Biology of Spotted Flounder (Ciutharus linguatula Linnaeus, 1758) in Edremit Bay (North Aegean Sea)” (D. Türker, B. Bayhan, et al„ Turkish Journal of Veterinary and Animal Science, 2005:1013-1018) models the relationship between weight W and length L of spotted flounder as W = aLb where a and b are constants to be estimated from data. Transform this equation to produce a linear model.
