The spreadsheet gives both marriage and divorce rates for the United States per 1,000 people in the population. To
compute these the National Vital Statistics System
the number of marriages or divorces in a given year and divides by the total population, and then rescales to a rate per
1,000. The fact that the divorce rates are roughly half of the marriage rates leads to the incorrect misperception that
this means half of all marriages end in divorce. Divorces in a given year could be anyone married before that year,
while almost none of the people married in a given year will be divorced in that year.
b.)
the slope and
decimal places.
c.)

d.) True or false
because only married people can get divorced. Answer should be
