Question

We expect a car’s highway gas mileage to be related to its city
gas mileage (in mpg). Data for all 1209 vehicles in the
government’s *2016 Fuel Economy Guide* give the regression
line

highway mpg=7.903+(0.993×city mpg)

for predicting highway mileage from city mileage.

(a) What is the slope of this line? (Enter your answer rounded to three decimal places.)

slope:

What does the numerical value of the slope tell you?

On average, highway mileage increases by 0.993 mpg for each additional mpg in city mileage.

On average, highway mileage increases by 7.903 mpg for each additional mpg in city mileage.

For every 7.903 mpg in city gas mileage, highway gas mileage increases about 0.993 mpg.

On average, highway mileage decreases by 0.993 mpg for each additional mpg in city mileage.

Highway gas mileage increases with city gas mileage by 7.903 mpg for each additional mpg in city mileage.

(b) What is the intercept? (Enter your answer rounded to three decimal places.)

intercept:

mpg

Why is the value of the intercept not statistically meaningful?

The value of the intercept represents the predicted highway mileage for slope 0.

The value of the intercept represents the predicted highway mileage for city gas mileage of 0 mpg, and such a prediction would be invalid, since 0 is outside the range of the data.

The value of the intercept is an average value calculated from a sample.

The value of the intercept represents the predicted highway mileage for city gas mileage of 0 mpg, and such a car does not exist.

(c) Find the predicted highway mileage, ?̂, for a car that gets 15 miles per gallon in the city. (Enter your answer rounded to three decimal places.)

?̂= mpg

Find the predicted highway mileage, ?̂, for a car that gets 23 miles per gallon in the city. (Enter your answer rounded to three decimal places.)

?̂= mpg

Answer #1

(a)

The slope of the line is 0.993.

Correct option is:

On average, highway mileage increases by 0.993 mpg for each additional mpg in city mileage.

(b)

The intercept is 7.903.

Correct option is:

The value of the intercept represents the predicted highway mileage for city gas mileage of 0 mpg, and such a car does not exist.

(c)

The predicted value for city-mpg = 15 is

highway mpg=7.903+(0.993×15) = 22.798

The predicted value for city-mpg = 23 is

highway mpg=7.903+(0.993×23) = 30.742

A linear model to predict the Price of a used car (in $) from
its Mileage (in miles) was fit to 33 used cars that were available
during a one-week period within 200 miles of a particular city.
The model is shown below. Complete parts a through g below.
Price=21,253.54−0.11024 Mileage
a) What is the explanatory variable?
A.Price, because the mileage of the car is used to predict the
price
B.Price, because the price of the car is used to...

A major U.S. automaker has determined that the city mileage for
its new hybrid gas/electric model is normally distributed with a

company buys 50 of these cars.
What is the probability that the mean gas mileage of the rental
fleet is less than 27.5 miles per gallon?
