Unformatted text preview: STAT 420 Spring 2010 Homework #7 (12 points) (due Friday, March 19, by 4:00 p.m.) 1. A students wonders if people of similar heights tend to date each other. She measures herself, her dormitory roommate, and the women in the adjoining rooms; then she measures the next man each woman dates. Here are the data (heights in inches): Women, x 68 64 68 67 70 65 Men, y 73 68 71 69 73 66 x = 402, y = 420, x 2 = 26,958, y 2 = 29,440, x y = 28,167, ( x x ) 2 = 24, ( y y ) 2 = 40, ( x x ) ( y y ) = ( x x ) y = 27. Assume that ( X , Y ) have a bivariate normal distribution. a) Find the sample correlation coefficient r between the heights of the women and men.
