Question

Question;scatterplotThe attached data file (Magazines.xls) contains the hours per month spent telemarketing and the number of new subscriptions per month over a two-year period for a magazine publisher. The publisher would like to predict the number of new subscriptions based on the hours spenttelemarketing. Use the data to create a scatterplot, add a trendline, request the regression line equation and the r-squared value. (You do not have to submit the scatterplot but you will need it to answer Questions 1 ? 6 below.) HINT: Make sure the explanatory variable is on the x-axis. 1. Describe the overall pattern of the relationship between hours spent telemarketing and number of new subscriptions. 2. What is the correlation between hours spent telemarketing and number of new subscriptions? [numerical answer required] 3. What is the equation for the least squares regression line? [Note: The OLI materials give the equation in the form Y = a + bx But Excel presents the equation as Y = bx + a. It doesn?t matter which way you express it as long as it is correct and you can distinguish between the intercept and the slope.] 4. If telemarketing hours increase by one hour, we would expect the number of new subscriptions to _________ by ____________. 5. Predict the number of subscriptions for a month in which there were 900 hours of telemarketing. 6. Explain why it would not be a good idea to predict the number of subscriptions for a month in which there were 1600 hours of telemarketing. 7. A researcher found that the relationship between the appraised value of a house (in thousands of dollars) and its age (in years) could be summarized by the regression equation: Appraised value = 400.8 - 2.5 * age. Interpret the value of the slope in the context of this study. 8. A medical researcher asks: What is the effect of age on blood pressure? Identify the explanatory and response variables. 9. InNewYorkState there is a fairly strong positive correlation between principals? salaries and the reading scores of their students. (This is true.) Upon learning this, a politician recommends that principals?salaries be increased because this will cause students? reading scores to increase. Good idea?(Explain your answer.)
