The are both using the same data points to find an equation of the line of best fit: the squirrel population, p, in 2002 and the squirrel population, q, in 2011. Mark is using the year as the x-value, and he represents his data as (2002, p) and (2011, q). Jessica is using the years since 2000 as her x-value, and she represents her data as (2, p) and (11, q).
