    77. A grassroots group opposed to a proposed increase in the gas tax claimed that the increase would hurt working-class people the most, since they commute the farthest to work. Suppose that the group randomly surveyed 24 individuals and asked them their daily one-way commuting mileage. The results are as follows.

    Working-Class Professional (middles incomes) Professional (wealthy)

    Lane – Ch. 142. The formula for a regression equation is Y’ = 2X + 9.
    a. What would be the predicted score for a person scoring 6 on X?
    b. If someone’s predicted score was 14, what was this person’s score on X?

    6. For the X,Y data below, compute:
    a. r and determine if it is significantly different from zero.
    b. the slope of the regression line and test if it differs significantly from zero.

    5. At a school pep rally, a group of sophomore students organized a free raffle for

    prizes. They claim that they put the names of all of the students in the school in

    the basket and that they randomly drew 36 names out of this basket. Of the prize

    winners, 6 were freshmen, 14 were sophomores, 9 were juniors, and 7 were
    seniors. The results do not seem that random to you. You think it is a little fishy
    that sophomores organized the raffle and also won the most prizes. Your school is
    composed of 30% freshmen, 25% sophomores, 25% juniors, and 20% seniors.

    a. What are the expected frequencies of winners from each class?
    b. Conduct a significance test to determine whether the winners of the prizes

    were distributed throughout the classes as would be expected based on the

    percentage of students in each group. Report your Chi Square and p values.

    c. What do you conclude?

    14. A geologist collects hand-specimen sized pieces of limestone from a particular

    area. A qualitative assessment of both texture and color is made with the

    following results. Is there evidence of association between color and texture for

    these limestones? Explain your answer.

    COLOR COLOR COLOR

    Use the following information to answer the next twelve exercises: Suppose an airline claims that its flights are consistently on time with an average delay of at most 15 minutes. It claims that the average delay is so consistent that the variance is no more than 150 minutes. Doubting the consistency part of the claim, a disgruntled traveler calculates the delays for his next 25 flights. The average delay for those 25 flights is 22 minutes with a standard deviation of 15 minutes.
