Age 0 1 2 3 4 5 6
Weight .69 1.09 1.38 1.61 1.79 1.94 2.08

A. Graph the ferret weights on age and find a mathematical expression that relates weight of a ferret as a function of age. Compute how much weight a ferret gains per month as a function of age.

B. My friend has a 9 month old ferret. How much does he weigh? How much weight will he gain in the coming month? Will he ever weigh 10 pounds?
