Question: The following data on y = glucose concentration (g/L) and x = fermentation time (days) for a particular blend of malt liquor was read from a scatter plot in the article â€œImproving Fermentation Productivity with Reverse Osmosisâ€ ± (Food Tech., 1984: 92â€“96): x l 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 y 74 54 52 51 52 53 58 71 a. Verify that a scatter plot of the data is consistent with the choice of a quadratic regression model. b. The estimated quadratic regression equation is y = 84.482 â€“ 15.875x + 1.7679x2. Predict the value of glucose concentration for a fermentation time of 6 days, and compute the corresponding residual. c. Using SSE = 61.77, what proportion of observed variation can be attributed to the quadratic regression relationship? d. The n = 8 standardized residuals based on the quadratic model are 1.91, â€“1.95, â€“.25, .58, .90, .04, â€“.66, and .20. Construct a plot of the standardized residuals versus x and a normal probability plot. Do the plots exhibit any troublesome features? e. The estimated standard deviation of â€”that is, â€”is 1.69. Compute a 95% CI for Î¼yÂ·6. f. Compute a 95% PI for a glucose concentration observation made after 6 days of fermentation time.
Answer : From the available information, y = glucose concentration (g/L) and x = fermentation time (days) for a particular blend of malt liquor was read from a scatter plot.

### 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.
