In setting standards for the consumption of fish tainted by chemicals in the water from which they were taken, the U.S. government commissioned a study of fish consumption for one such contaminated area. A part of the study involved interviews with a sample of non-commercial fishers that asked, among other things, how often the person fished in this water over the past month and how many fish meals his or her family consumed over the past month. The number of meals was then converted to grams of fish consumed (a statistical process in itself). The number of fishing trips is fairly easy for people to remember, but they aren’t so accurate at reporting the number of fish their family ate. A good model relating the number of fishing trips to consumption would be helpful in estimating fish consumption. From the set of data in Display 3.110, find such a model.
