The table below gives the age and bone density for five randomly selected women. Using this data, consider the equation of the regression line, yˆ=b0+b1xy^=b0+b1x, for predicting a woman's bone density based on her age. Keep in mind, the correlation coefficient may or may not be statistically significant for the data given. Remember, in practice, it would not be appropriate to use the regression line to make a prediction if the correlation coefficient is not statistically significant.

 Age Bone Density 39 47 54 59 62 351 342 337 315 312

Step 1 of 6:

Step 2 of 6:

Step 3 of 6:

Determine if the statement "Not all points predicted by the linear model fall on the same line" is true or false.

Step 4 of 6:

Determine the value of the dependent variable yˆ at x=0

Step 5 of 6:

According to the estimated linear model, if the value of the independent variable is increased by one unit, then the change in the dependent variable yˆ is given by?

Step 6 of 6:

Find the value of the coefficient of determination. Round your answer to three decimal places.

The statistical software output for this problem is:

Hence,

1) Slope = -1.746

2) y - Intercept = 422.524

3) False

4) Value of dependent variable = bo = 422.524

5) Change in dependent variable = b1 = -1.746

6) Coefficient of determination = 0.901
