    The drying time of varnish depends on the amount of certain chemical that s added.
    a. Determine a best (least-squares) ft parabola of the form:
    T(m) = x1 + x2m + x3m^2 to the data provided n the table below

    b) Also, estimate the drying time of the varnish when 3.5 grams of the chemical are added.

    Mass (m) of Additive (Grams) Drying Time (T) (Hours)
    1 8.5
    2 8.0
    3 6.0
    4 5.0
    5 6.0
    6 5.5
    7 6.5
    8 7.0
