A scientist is studying red maple tree growth. She measures the trunk diameters of a sample of trees in the same month every other year. The tables show the data for two of the trees. This is the final year in which she will collect data. When her data collection is complete, she will predict future red maple tree growth. The scientist creates an equation that models her data for each tree so that she can predict the diameter in the future. Complete a linear equation that fits the data for tree 1, where x is the year and y is the trunk diameter in inches.
Using the table above, in year 13, the scientist will put a tree wrap around tree 1 to protect it from the winter snow. The height of the tree wrap needs to be 45 inches. The wrap is priced by the square foot. To the nearest square foot, how many square feet of wrap does she need?
Options: a) 22 b) 44 c) 121 d) 261
