### Problem 32

The following table provides values of the function $f(x, y) .$ However, because of potential errors in measurement, the functional values may be slightly inaccurate. Using the statistical package included with a graphing calculator or spreadsheet and critical thinking skills, find the function $f(x, y)=a+b x+c y$ that best estimates the table where $a, b,$ and $c$ are integers. (Hint: Do a linear regression on each column with the value of $y$ fixed and then use these four regression equations to determine the coefficient $c . )$
