MATH200 — Practice Quiz: Chapter 4 — 20 min
Work this like a regular quiz, using only your crib sheet. Give yourself a maximum of 20 minutes, then turn to the solutions and see how you did.
Remember, you must show your work for full credit on any problems involving computation.
For a random sample of TC3 students, the number of hours of TV per day and the GPA were recorded. Results were as follows:
|TV hr/day, x||1||8||3||2||6||1||3||7||4||9|
(a) (points: 2) Make a scatter plot of these data on your calculator.
(b) (points: 3) Find the correlation coefficient and the equation of the line that fits these points best. Round to four decimal places, and label them with their proper symbols.
(c) (points: 2) Based on the regression, what is the expected GPA (accurate to two decimal places) for a student who watches 7 hours of TV daily? Use the proper symbol in your answer.
(d) (points: 2) Find the value of the residual for x = 7.
(e) (points: 2) The decision point for sample size 10 is 0.632. What if anything can you conclude about the relation between TV watching and GPA for all TC3 students?
2(points: 2) A scatter plot is shown at right. Would the value of r be strongly positive, near zero, or strongly negative? Briefly explain your answer.
