Real-Life Application : Examples of Data Modeled Using a Linear Formula

Find an article through newspapers, magazines, professional journals, etc and find at least two examples of data that are best modeled using linear formulae. Describe the importance of each example and why a linear model is appropriate for the data. Note that we are referring to a linear model not simply a time chart where dots
