Waterbury Insurance Company wants to study the relationship
between the amount of fire damage and the distance between the
burning house and the nearest fire station. This information will
be used in setting rates for insurance coverage. For a sample of 30
claims for the last year, the director of the actuarial department
determined the distance from the fire station (x) and the
amount of fire damage, in thousands of dollars (y). The
MegaStat output is reported below.
