At a family reunion, each family member recorded his or her age and height. a. Fully describe the association. b. Copy the scatterplot and draw the trend line. Does your y-intercept make sense in this problem situation?

a. The scatterplot has a moderate positive linear association with no outliers.
b. See the explanation for the graph. The y-intercept is a small positive umber so it makes sense since the y-intercept corresponds to the height of a newborn baby which would be a small positive number compared to the heights of adults.

Using the health records of ever student at a high school, the school nurse created a scatterplot relating y = height (in centimeters) to x = age (in years). After verifying that the conditions for the regression model were met, the nurse calculated the equation of the population regression line to be &\(\mu;0=105+4.2x\) with &\(\sigma;=7\) cm. According to the population regression line, what is the average height of 15-year-old students at this high school?

Using the health records of ever student at a high school, the school nurse created a scatterplot relating y = height (in centimeters) to x = age (in years). After verifying that the conditions for the regression model were met, the nurse calculated the equation of the population regression line to be μ0=105+4.2x with σ=7 cm. If the nurse used a random sample of 50 students from the school to calculate the regression line instead of using all the students, would the slope of the sample regression line be exactly 4.2? Explain your answer.
