Step 1
Scatterplot World Oil
Production is on thehorizontal axis and U.S. Percent of World Oil Production is on the vertical axis. The World Oil Production ranges from 7 to 21, thus an appropriate scale for the horizontal axis is from 0 to 22. The U.S.
Percent of World Oil Production ranges from 45.9 to 72.5, thus an appropriate scale for the vertical axis is from 30 to 80.

Step 2
We draw a horizontal line at 12% until we arrive at the location where we expect the new point to fit in the pattern. Next, we draw a vertical line through this expected new point. We note then note that this vertical line intersects the horizontal axis at approximately 62 and thus the estimated world production of oil when the United States produced 12% of the world’s oil is expect to be 62 billion barrels. Result: 62 billion barrels.

Unusual points Each of the four scatterplots that follow shows a cluster of points and one “stray” point. For each, answer these questions:
1) In what way is the point unusual? Does it have high leverage, a large residual, or both?
2) Do you think that point is an influential point?
3) If that point were removed, would the correlation be- come stronger or weaker? Explain.
4) If that point were removed, would the slope of the re- gression line increase or decrease? Explain

An article in Fortune (September 21, 1992) claimed that nearly one-half of all engineers continue academic studies beyond the B.S. degree, ultimately receiving aither an M.S. or a Ph.D. degree. Data from an article in Engineering Horizons (Spring 1990) indicated that 117 of 484 new engineering graduates were planning graduate study.
Are the data from Engineering Horizons consistent with the claim reported by Fortune? Use α=0.05 in reaching your conclusions.
