2. Question 5.40, Page 145. Using Excel, we obtain the following scatterplot: Exercise 5.40, Page 145 y = 11.894x - 1.2861 R 2 = 0.8391 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 0123456 Stemps Larvae r = square root of 0.8391 and is positive = 0.916. The decision point to test whether there is a statistically significant relationship between the stumps and beetle larvae is 0.413. Since r > 0.413, we can conclude that there is a statistically significant relationship between the stumps and beetle larvae. We can say that the data support the “beavers benefits beetles” idea.
