Question

# a.) Using regression to

find a linear equation for P(n)

P(n) = _______

b.) Find the correlation coefficient

r = _______

c.) Does the correlation coefficient indicate a strong linear trend, a weak linear trend, or no linear trend?

d.) Interpret the meaning of the slope of your formula in the context of the problem. (Be specific, using the actual value of the slope to explain its meaning)

e.) Interpret the meaning of the P internept in the context of the problem. (Be Specific)

f.) Use your model to predict the number of people that will complain about his attitude if he drinks 10 cups of coffee.

g.) Is the answer to part f reasonable? Why or why not?

h.) How many cups of coffee should he drink so that no one will complain about his attitude? It is ok to round to one decimal place.

A particular professor has noticed that the number of people, P, who complain about his attitude is dependent on the number of cups of coffee, n,
he drinks. From eight days of tracking he compiled the following data:
People (P)
