2 . To complete a painting job requires four hours setup time plus one hour per 1,000 square feet. How would you express this information in a linear equation?

3 . A statistics instructor is paid a per-class fee of $2,000 plus$100 for each student in the class. How would you express this information in a linear equation?

4 . A tutoring school requires students to pay a one-time enrollment fee of $500 plus tuition of$3,000 per year. Express this information in an equation.

## 12.2: slope and Y -intercept of a linear equation

Use the following information to answer the next four exercises. For the labor costs of doing repairs, an auto mechanic charges a flat fee of $75 per car, plus an hourly rate of$55.

5 . What are the independent and dependent variables for this situation?

6 . Write the equation and identify the slope and intercept.

7 . What is the labor charge for a job that takes 3.5 hours to complete?

8 . One job takes 2.4 hours to complete, while another takes 6.3 hours. What is the difference in labor costs for these two jobs?

## 12.3: scatter plots

9 . Describe the pattern in this scatter plot, and decide whether the X and Y variables would be good candidates for linear regression.

10 . Describe the pattern in this scatter plot, and decide whether the X and Y variables would be good candidates for linear regression.

11 . Describe the pattern in this scatter plot, and decide whether the X and Y variables would be good candidates for linear regression.

12 . Describe the pattern in this scatter plot, and decide whether the X and Y variables would be good candidates for linear regression.

## 12.4: the regression equation

Use the following information to answer the next four exercises. Height (in inches) and weight (In pounds) in a sample of college freshman men have a linear relationship with the following summary statistics:
$\overline{x}$ = 68.4
$\overline{y}$ =141.6
s x = 4.0
s y = 9.6
r = 0.73
Let Y = weight and X = height, and write the regression equation in the form:
$\stackrel{^}{y}=a+bx$

13 . What is the value of the slope?

14 . What is the value of the y intercept?

15 . Write the regression equation predicting weight from height in this data set, and calculate the predicted weight for someone 68 inches tall.

## 12.5: correlation coefficient and coefficient of determination

16 . The correlation between body weight and fuel efficiency (measured as miles per gallon) for a sample of 2,012 model cars is –0.56. Calculate the coefficient of determination for this data and explain what it means.

17 . The correlation between high school GPA and freshman college GPA for a sample of 200 university students is 0.32. How much variation in freshman college GPA is not explained by high school GPA?

18 . Rounded to two decimal places what correlation between two variables is necessary to have a coefficient of determination of at least 0.50?

## 12.6: testing the significance of the correlation coefficient

19 . Write the null and alternative hypotheses for a study to determine if two variables are significantly correlated.

20 . In a sample of 30 cases, two variables have a correlation of 0.33. Do a t -test to see if this result is significant at the α = 0.05 level. Use the formula:
$t=\frac{r\sqrt{n-2}}{\sqrt{1-{r}^{2}}}$

Suppose from the 1,000 freshmen that took the entrance examination, it was found out that the standard deviation was 10 a. How many students passed the test if the passing score is set 75? b. What scores comprise the middle 95% of all scores?
Hi

In a survey of 100 stocks on NASDAQ, the average percent increase for the past year was 9% for NASDAQ stocks.
what is primary data and it's various types of collection of data?
If a random variable X takes only two values -2 and 1 such that 2 P[X=- 2]=P[X=1]=P, then find variance of x.

The lower class boundary is found by subtracting 0.5 units from the lowerclass limit and the upper class boundary is found by adding 0.5 units to the upper class limit. The difference between the upper and lowerboundaries of any class.
