The biologist is interested in constructing a simple linear regression model to investigate the relationshipbetween weight of an animal and the level of heavy metal contamination. In the proposed regression model the levelof contaminant is the response variable and weight is the explanatory variable. The contaminant level is measured inparts per billion (ppb) and weight in grams.A random sample of 20 individuals is selected and measurements are taken.Contaminant study inSouth Nakaratuan Chubby BatContaminant level(ppb)Weight(g)181149132109153115189145169146186146154131155133135121136113114105144123165139134102134105Download the data198146116110187139120100224107Plotting the data, the researcher notices an obvious outlier.

A linear regression model is to be constructed. Inthe proposed regression model, number of motor vehicle accidents per year is theresponse variable and population of the city is the explanatory variable.A random sample of 20 cities is selected and measurements are observed.Population('000s)No. accidentsper year2,7006,6922,3405,8794802,4732,5907,1102,4706,404Download the data1,5404,5722,2605,8622,1404,9819503,7582,1406,4321,8104,3673,1306,7172,2205,4101,7004,7674202,5301,6204,2562,1204,4017502,6371,1002,9951,1903,454a) Calculate the point prediction for the value x = 2,500.

It is part of a regression model that has been developed in order to predict the scorein an end-of-year exam based on the score in a mid-year exam for a particular university course. In the sample, midyear scores ranged from 50 to 80.Select whether or not each of the following conclusions are correct from the regression analysis:Correcta)For an increase by one in the mid-year score, the predicted increase in end-ofyear score is 1.2.b)If a student achieves a score of 45 in the mid-year exam then we know that thestudent will achieve a score of 59 in the end-of-year exam.Notcorrectc)If a student achieves a score of 60 in the mid-year exam then we know that thestudent will achieve a score of 77 in the end-of-year exam.6 of 11ID: MST.NDM.CC.08.0010[1point] point]An investigation has been conducted to determine whether there is arelationship between the salary paid to a Chief Executive Officer (CEO)and the productivity of that CEO as measured by the change in profitsfrom the time the CEO was employed.The scatter plot plots the salary paid (x) against the change in profits (y)of a sample of CEOs. Without doing any calculations and according onlyto this scatter diagram, a reasonable coefficient of correlation (r)between x and y would be:r = 1.57r = 0.33r = -1.94r = -0.537 of 11ID: MST.SLR.TM.01.0030[1point] point]It has been hypothesised that there is a linear relationship between the average annual interest rate and the volumeof car sales, and that relationship can be represented as follows: show variables^y= b0 + b1xThe following table lists the average interest rates recorded in a particular year and the corresponding number of carsales:Interest Rates and Car SalesInterest Rate (% per annum)Car Sales Volume (millions)55.435.75.4694.84.9865.64.6828.74.5796.94.2534.24.9848.24.7347.64.2024.65.332Using the data provided, and at = 0.05, the null hypothesis that a significant linear relationship between theaverage annual interest rate and the volume of car sales does not exist is.
