Heights and mid-parent heights are given for 18 college students. Draw a scatterplot for the data, using different symbols for males and females as instructed in part (b). Based on the scatterplot, would you say that the correlation between height and mid-parent height is higher for the females in the sample or for the males? Or are the correlation values about the same for males and females?

Below is the scatterplot of the given data. The correlation between these two variables seems to be a bit higher for females, since the red dots on the graph (data for females) seem to follow their regression line more than blue dots (data for males) do - blu dots seem a bit more scattered than red dots which causes lower correlation coefficient for "male data". Here is the scatterplot of the given data:

Does a higher state per capita income equate to a higher per capita beer consumption? From the document Survey of Current Business, published by the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, and from the Brewer’s Almanac, published by the Beer Institute, we obtained data on personal income per capita, in thousands of dollars, and per capita beer consumption, in gallons, for the 50 states and Washington, D.C. a) Obtain a scatterplot for the data. b) Decide whether finding a regression line for the data is reasonable. If so, then also do parts (c)-(f). c) Determine and interpret the regression equation for the data. d) Identify potential outliers and influential observations. e) In case a potential outlier is present, remove it and discuss the effect. f) In case a potential influential observation is present, remove it and discuss the effect.

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  [μy=16.6+1.02]with[σ=6.6+F]

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.

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.
