Consumer Reports rated 77 cereals on a scale of 0 to 100. The number of grams of sugar contained in
each serving of the corresponding cereals was also recorded. Using sugar as the explanatory variable
and the Consumer Reports rating as the dependent variable, computer output of the data is as follows
(the pvalues are intentionally left blank): Predictor Coef StDev T P Constant 58.93 1.847 30.58 Sugars − 2.56 0.28 − 9.98 S = 9.204 RSq = 61.2% RSq(adj) = 59.9%
Part a: What is the regression equation?
Part b: Calculate the 95% confidence interval of the slope of the regression line for all cereals. Part c: Use the information provided to test whether there is a significant relationship between the
sugar content and the Consumer Report rating at the 5% level. 7/9 12/20/2015 Print Test a) I have placed my work and my answer on my answer sheet. b) I want to have points deducted from my test for not working this problem. Question 17 Your answer is CORRECT.
