14. B – The reversal of the relationship between two categorical variables is Simpson’s paradox. 15. C – The closer r is to –1 or 1, the stronger the relationship. 16. D – The closer r is to 0, the weaker the relationship. 17. S xx = ∑ x 2 n x 2 = 701 – ( 53 ) 2 5 = 701 – 561.8 = 139.2 S yy = ∑ y 2 n y 2 = 849 – ( 59 ) 2 5 = 849 – 696.2 = 152.8 S xy = ∑ xy –  n y x = 482 – ( 53 ) ( 59 ) 5 = 482 – 625.4 = –143.4 r = xy xx yy S S S = 143.4 ( 139.2 )( 152.8 ) = –0.9833
STAT 210 TEST 3 SOLUTIONS – Version B Question Answer 1. The population of interest is all earthquakes that have occurred between January 2015 and September 2017. 2. Number of People Killed is the dependent or response variable Y. 3. Magnitude of Earthquake is the independent or explanatory variable X 4. 91.32 people (91 or 92 people) – predicted number of people killed = -114 + 35.4(5.8) = 91.32 5. 6. The actual r = 0.64. Any guess between 0 and 0.75 is acceptable. 7. B – The point stands out from the rest of the data in the vertical direction. It is within the range of the X data. 8. The scatterplot shows a weak to moderate linear relationship between the magnitude of the earthquake and the number of people killed. It is really more of a non-linear (exponential) relationship. The direction is positive. 9. F – The intercept tells us what Y would be if X were equal to zero. 10. E – The slope tells us how much Y changes when X increases by one.

### 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.
