1. (8 points) Suppose we are interested in the relationship between height and weight. To examine this relationship, we take a sample of 100 people and measure both the height and weight of each (I.e. for each person, we end up with a pair of numbers (x, y), where x is the height in inches and y is the weight in kilograms .). For this relationship, write down the units of: a) the correlation r between height and weight. r is unitless b) a and b where bx a y + = ˆ is the regression line of weight on height. unit of a: inches unit of b: kg/inches c) X , the mean height. inches d) S x 2 , the variance of the variable height. inches 2 2.

c) Is the distribution symmetric/ skewed left /skewed right? d) What kind of measure is a good choice of center in this case? median e) Find the IQR (Inter Quartile Range). Then use the 1.5 x IQR criterion to check for suspected outliers.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
