Using the daily high and low temperature readings at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport for an entire year, a meteorologist made a scatterplot relating y = high temperature to x = low temperature, both in degrees Fahrenheit.

After verifying that the conditions for the regression model were met, the meteorologist calculated the equation of the population regression line to be \(\left[\mu_y=16.6+1.02\right] with \left[\sigma = 6.6+^\circ F\right]\)

If the meteorologist used a random sample of 10 days to calculate the regression line instead of using all the days in the year, would the slope of the sample regression line be exactly 1.02? Explain your answer.

After verifying that the conditions for the regression model were met, the meteorologist calculated the equation of the population regression line to be \(\displaystyle{\left[\mu_{{y}}={16.6}+{1.02}\right]}{w}{i}{t}{h}{\left[\sigma={6.6}+^{\circ}{F}\right]}\).

About what percent of days with a low temperature of \(\displaystyle{40}^{\circ}\) F have a high temperature greater than \(\displaystyle{70}^{\circ}\) F?

Using the health records of ever student at a high school, the school nurse created a scatterplot relating \(\displaystyle{y}=\ \text{height (in centimeters) to}\ {x}=\ \text{age (in years).}\)

\(\displaystyle\text{After verifying that the conditions for the regression model were met, the nurse calculated the equation of the population regression line to be}\ \mu_{{{0}}}={105}\ +\ {4.2}{x}\ \text{with}\ \sigma={7}\ {c}{m}.\) About what percent of 15-year-old students at this school are taller than 180 cm?
