statistics from the study are shown below:
height: average = 70.5 inches, SD = 3.0 inches
weight: average = 165 pounds, SD = 30 pounds Correlation = 0.55
The scatter diagram is football shaped. The investigators used the regression method to estimate weight from height for each of these men, and then divided the men into two groups according to how well the regression
method estimated their weight: (i) those for whom the regression method was off by 10 pounds or less.
(ii) those for whom the regression method was off by more than 10 pounds. (a) One man in the study was 6 feet tall and weighed 180 pounds. Which group does he belong to: (i) or (ii)? / »
