(TCO 9) The hours of study and the final exam grades have this type of relationship:
ŷ = 5.76(hours) + 35.31. Based on this linear regression equation, estimate the expected grade for a

(TCO 5) At a drive through window of a bank it’s found that 10 customers get served every 15 minutes.
The bank’s manage is interested in finding a way to increase the number of customers that can be
served. He thought that knowing the probability of serving 12 customers per 15 minutes could be helpful
to him in the decision making process. Choose the best answer of the following:

(TCO 2) The median teaching hours for a full time faculty at a state university is eight hours per week.
What does this tell you about the typical teaching hours for full time faculty at that university?
(Points : 6)
Half of the full time faculties teach less than eight hours per week while half teaches more than eight
hours per week.
The average teaching hours for full time faculty is eight hours per week.
More full time faculty teaches eight hours per week than any other number of teaching hours.
The number of teaching hours for full time faculty in not very consistent because eight is such a low
number.
