NOTE: you might be able to get all the necessary information from the Excel analysis output or the scatter plot. You don’t need to do computations by applying the numeric formula.

A clothing department wants to find out if there is a relationship (and what kind of relationship) between the price of an item and the time that it takes to a customer to decide in buying that item.

 ITEM PRICE (X) DECISION TIME IN MINUTES (Y) \$17 9 \$63 15 \$140 20 \$250 30 \$10 4 \$8 5 \$170 27 \$280 30

2. Give (or calculate) the correlation coefficient.
3. Give (or calculate) the coefficient of determination.
4. Give (or calculate) the regression equation coefficients; Give the equation of regression.

e. (very important)

Based on the above values, in detail draw the conclusion:

• Discuss the correlation coefficient r
• Discuss the coefficient of determination r2
• Discuss in detail the meaning of the regression equation

f. (unrelated to previous data)

A company has a set of data with employee age (X) and the corresponding number of annual on-the-job-accidents.
