When we measure the light intensity in % of the light intensity in surface waters and the depth in meters We get this table: X(m) = 0 10 20 30 60 80 I(X) (%) 100 75 56 42 17 10 A) find the exponential regression I used geogebra and found I(x)= 99.9*0.97^x B) Find the depth when the light intensity is 27% I(27)=99.9*0.97^27=43.89 Meters The book says the answer is about 43 M. C) The light intensity is 1% in the depth of 160 m. Research with the models too see if it fits in the depth. I(1) = 99.9* 0.97^1= 96.9 M The book says the answer is 0.96. But I(0.96) = 99.9 * 0.97^0.96 = 97 M I don't get 160 M what have i done wrong? Tags exponential, inside, light, ocean, regression ### ocean light intensity exponential to depth
