Let x be the age in years of a licensed automobile driver. Let y be the percentage of all fatal accidents (for a given age) due to speeding. For example, the first data pair indicates that 37% of all fatal accidents of 17-year-olds are due to speeding.

x 17 27 37 47 57 67 77

y 37 23 18 12 10 7 5

Complete parts (a) through (e), given Σx = 329, Σy = 112, Σx2 = 18,263, Σy2 = 2540, Σxy = 3904, and r ≈ −0.940.

(a) Draw a scatter diagram displaying the data.

y =

^y= + x

(d) Graph the least-squares line. Be sure to plot the point (x, y) as a point on the line.

(e) Find the value of the coefficient of determination r2. What percentage of the variation in y can be explained by the corresponding variation in x and the least-squares line? What percentage is unexplained? (Round your answer for r2 to three decimal places. Round your answers for the percentages to one decimal place.)
