a. See the plot. b. $r=0.61$ c. The correlation coefficient is not significant at $\alpha=$0.01 d. $y' = -0.1701x + 5.816$ e. See the plot. f. $1.05$

Work Step by Step

a. Draw the scatter plot. See the plot. b. Compute the value of the correlation coefficient. $r=0.61$ c. Test the significance of the correlation coefficient at $\alpha=$0.01, using Table I. $df=5, r_c=0.875$ $r< r_c$ the correlation coefficient is not significant at $\alpha=$0.01 d. Determine the regression line equation if r is significant. $y' = -0.1701x + 5.816$ e. Plot the regression line on the scatter plot, if appropriate. See the plot. f. Predict y for a specific value of x, if appropriate. x=28 $y' = -0.1701\times 28 + 5.816=1.05$
