A. what would be the predicted score for a person scoring 6


Homework week 7


2.         The formula for a regression equation is Y’ = 2X + 9.

            a.         What would be the predicted score for a person scoring 6 on X?

            b.         If someone’s predicted score was 14, what was this person’s score on X?


From the regression chapter:

6.         For the X, Y data below, compute:

            a.         r and determine if it is significantly different from zero.

            b.         the slope of the regression line and test if it differs significantly from zero.

            c.         the 95% confidence interval for the slope.

5.         At a school pep rally, a group of sophomore students organized a free raffle for prizes.  Tlhey claim that they put the names of all of the students in the school in the basket and that they randomly drew 36 names out of this basket.  Of the prize winners, 6 were freshman, 14 were sophomores, 9 were juniors, and 7 were seniors.  The results do not seem that random to you.  You think it is a little fishy that sophomores organized the raffle and also won the most prizes.  Your school is composed of 30% freshman, 25% sophomores, 25% juniors, and 20% seniors. 

            a.         What are the expected frequencies of winners from each class?

b.         Conduct a significance test to determine whether the winners of the prizes were distributed throughout the classes as would be expected based on the percentage of students in each group.  Report your Chi Square and p values.

            c.         What do you conclude?


14.       A geologist collects hand-specimen sized pieces of limestone from a particular area.  A qualitative assessment of both texture and color is made with the followng results.  Is there evidence of association between color and texture for these limestones?  Explain your answer.


True or False

70.       The standard deviation of the chi-square distribution is twice the mean.

113.    Suppose an airline claims that its flights are consistently on time with an average delay of at most 15 minutes.  It claims that the average delay is so consistent that the variance is no more than 150 minutes.  Doubting the consistency part of the claim, a disgruntle traveler calculates the delays for his next 25 flights.  The average delay for those 25 flights is 22 minutes with a standard deviation of 15 minutes.

            a.         df= ____________.


The regression equation:

66.       Can a coefficient of determination be negative?  Why or why not?

82.       The cost of a leading liquid laundry detergent in different sizes is given in Table 12.31.

a.         Using “size” as the independent variable and “cost” as the dependent variable, draw a scatter plot.

b.         Does it appear from inspection that there is a relationship between the variables?  Why or why not?

c.         Calculate the least-squares line.  Put the equation in the form of:  = a + bx

d.         Find the correlation coefficient.  Is it significant?

e.         If the laundry detergent were sold in a 40-ounce size, find the estimated cost.

f.          If the laundry detergent were sold in a 90-ounce size, find the estimated cost.

g.         Does it appear that a line is the best way to fit the data?  Why or why not?

h.         Are there any outliers in the given data?

i.          Is the least-squares line valid for predicting what a 300-ounce size of the laundry detergent would cost you?  Why or why not?

j.          What is the slope of the least-squares (best-fit) line?  Interpret the slope.

I gave a lower rating on the service because, a notification from the support team went out but it did not come to my email address. Had I not looked earlier on the website, then I would have been penalized for not turning in my paper on time. On my profile, I have a phone# and I also have an email address. Please set up a system to text or email new messages or notifications from the writer or support team. This will ensure that the order is processed in a timely manner. With the new and upcoming technology, this seems like it should be an easy fix to have a tool built in the website to email or text notifications of changes to orders. This is no reflection to the support team. I see this as a system issue and not a support team issue.
