*AssignmentPart B*

I.)The function that best replicates the shape of the data

Thescatter graph is a linear function since it is denoted by theequation

+c

Thisis because it has only one independent variable on the x-axis. Alinear equation is usually in the form y=A+BX. In this case, our y isthe money value, and our x is the months.

ii.)Using linear regression to estimate the function

Theabove equation is a multiple linear regression equation as the graphportrays a heteroscedasticity look and has two independent variables

iii.)The corresponding SLR model and derive the first order conditions
