1.    The strength of the linear relationship between two numerical variables may be measured by the

[removed]

 

scatter diagram.

[removed]

Question 2

1.      

If you wanted to analyze the correlation between the NUMBER OF HOURS PRACTICED and the NUMBER OF TARGETS HIT by a sharpshooter, which variable would be the dependent variable?

[removed]

 

Number of hours practiced

[removed]

 

Number of targets hit

[removed]

 

Neither one is dependent

[removed]

 

Either one could be dependent (impossible to determine)

Question 3

1.      

Before proceeding with a simple linear regression, you should first construct a scatter diagram in order that you can remove all outliers from the data.
 

[removed]True

[removed]False

Question 4

1.      

What does it mean to have a negative coefficient in the regression model?

[removed]

 

That variable reduces the coefficient of determination.

[removed]

 

The values for that variable are negative.

[removed]

 

There is an inverse relationship with that variable.

[removed]

 

The correlation is weak.

10 points  

Question 5

1.      

Assuming a linear relationship between X and Y, if the coefficient of correlation (r) equals -0.30,

[removed]

 

there is no correlation.

[removed]

 

the slope (b1) is negative.

[removed]

 

variable X is larger than variable Y.

[removed]

 

the variance of X is negative.

Question 6

1.      

If the hypothesis test for correlation is found to be significant (i.e., we rejected the null hypothesis / accepted the alternate hypothesis), what can we automatically conclude about the strength of the correlation?

[removed]

 

We can conclude that the correlation must be strong.

[removed]

 

We can only conclude that the correlation is not weak

[removed]

 

We cannot conclude anything about the strength of the correlation yet.

Question 7

1.      

A negative correlation coefficient implies that as the value of independent variable increases, the value of the dependent variable _________________.
 

[removed]

 

Increases

[removed]

 

Decreases

Question 8

1.      

There is a strong positive correlation between a baby’s weight and the size of his/her vocabulary. From this we can conclude that overeating will improve one’s vocabulary.
 

[removed]True

[removed]False

10 points  

Question 9

1.      

If the correlation coefficient (r) = 1.00, then

[removed]

 

all the data points must fall exactly on a straight line with a slope that equals 1.00.

[removed]

 

all the data points must fall exactly on a straight line with a negative slope.

[removed]

 

all the data points must fall exactly on a straight line with a positive slope.

[removed]

 

all the data points must fall exactly on a horizontal straight line with a zero slope.

10 points  

Question 10

1.      

Assume the regression model for predicting home prices by the square footage were: PRICE = 12510 + 83 (SQRFT) For every additional one square foot, how much does the price increase?

[removed]

 

$12,593

[removed]

 

$83

[removed]

 

$166

[removed]

 

Cannot be determined from the information given.
