A new drug was tested on mice to determine its effectiveness in reducing cancerous tumors. Tests were run on 10 mice, each having a tumor of size 4 grams, by varying the amount of the drug used and then determining the resulting reduction in the weight of the tumor. The data were as follows: Coded Amount of Drug Tumor Weight Reduction 1 .50 2 .90 3 1.20 4 1.35 5 1.50 6 1.60 7 1.53 8 1.38 9 1.21 10 .65 Estimate the maximum expected tumor reduction and the amount of the drug that attains it by fitting a quadratic regression equation of the form Y = 0 + 1x + 2x2 + e
