Lemons and Car Crashes Listed below are annual data for various years. The data are weights (metric tons) of lemons imported from Mexico and U.S. car crash fatality rates per 100,000 population [based on data from “The Trouble with QSAR (or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Embrace Fallacy),” by Stephen Johnson, Journal of Chemical Information and Modeling, Vol. 48, No. 1]. Is there sufficient evidence to conclude that there is a linear correlation between weights of lemon imports from Mexico and U.S. car fatality rates? Do the results suggest that imported lemons cause car fatalities? \(\begin{array}{|c|c|}Lemon\ imports &230&265&368&480&630\\ Crash\ Fatality\ Rate&159&157&15.3&15.4&14.9\end{array}\)

Step 1 The null and alternative hypotheses are, \(H_0 : p = 0\) There is no significance difference between weight of lemon imports from Mexico and U.S. car fatality rate. \(H_a : p \neq 40\) There is a difference between weight of lemon imports from Mexico and U.S. car fatality rate. This is a two-tailed test.The linear correlation coefficient is obtained using the Excel function = CORREL(array1, array2) results is – 0.959.

Testing for a Linear Correlation. In Exercises 13–28, construct a scatterplot, and find the value of the linear correlation coefficient r. Also find the P-value or the critical values of r from Table A-6. Use a significance level of \(\alpha = 0.05\). Determine whether there is sufficient evidence to support a claim of a linear correlation between the two variables.

The article “Stochastic Modeling for Pavement Warranty Cost Estimation” (J. of Constr. Engr. and Mgmnt., 2009: 352–359) proposes the following model for the distribution of Y = time to pavement failure. Let \(\displaystyle{X}_{{{1}}}\) be the time to failure due to rutting, and \(\displaystyle{X}_{{{2}}}\) be the time to failure due to transverse cracking, these two rvs are assumed independent. Then \(\displaystyle{Y}=\min{\left({X}_{{{1}}},{X}_{{{2}}}\right)}\). The probability of failure due to either one of these distress modes is assumed to be an increasing function of time t. After making certain distributional assumptions, the following form of the cdf for each mode is obtained: \(\displaystyle\Phi{\left[\frac{{{a}+{b}{t}}}{{\left({c}+{\left.{d}{t}\right.}+{e}{t}^{{{2}}}\right)}^{{\frac{{1}}{{2}}}}}\right]}\) where \(\Uparrow \Phi\) is the standard normal cdf. Values of the five parameters a, b, c, d, and e are -25.49, 1.15, 4.45, -1.78, and .171 for cracking and -21.27, .0325, .972, -.00028, and .00022 for rutting. Determine the probability of pavement failure within \(\displaystyle{t}={5}\) years and also \(\displaystyle{t}={10}\) years.
