## Homework Statement

Consider the following data set for ten first grade students; the variables are the number of minutes spent learning a list of spelling words and the number wrong on the spelling test. [15 points total]

(supposed to be a chart)

STUDENT A B C D E F G H I J

MINUTES 25 28 30 31 31 35 36 38 40 50

WRONG 12 10 8 1 6 4 4 3 2 1

a. Describe the scatter plot: form, direction, and strength. [3 points]

b. Determine the value of the correlation coefficient.

c. Determine the value of the coefficient of determination (state as a percent).

d. Find the slope of the best fitting regression line for predicting number wrong.

e. Find the intercept of this regression line.

f. Present the equation of this best fitting regression line.

g. If another student now studies the list for 32 minutes, use the equation to predict his number wrong.

h. If that student’s actual number wrong is 8, determine the residual associated with this prediction.

i. Plot the regression line on your scatterplot. (submit this plot)

j. Are there any outliers? If so, give the coordinates.

k. Are there any influential points? If so, give the coordinates.

l. Suppose another student studies the list for 60 minutes. Predict his number wrong.

m. Comment on this prediction.
