An 8th grade class develops a linear model that predicts the number of cheerios (a small round cereal) that fit on the circumference of a plate by using the diameter in inches. Their model is

The slope of this model is best interpreted in context as……

▸ It takes 5.11 cheerios to fill a plate's circumference.

▸ For every 1 inch of diameter, the circumference holds about 5.11 more cheerios.

▸ For every 5.11 inches of diameter, the circumference is about 1 cheerio bigger.

▸ For every 1 inch of diameter, the circumference holds about 0.56 more cheerios.

▸ A mistake, because π is about 3.14 and that should be the slope.
