5. (9 points) The
following regression model shows the relationship between selling price of a
house [y] and the number of bedrooms [x]; y ̂=100+0.6 x. Another separate regression
model shows the relationship between selling price of house [y] and the level
of the crime per week in the neighborhood [x]; y ̂=100-0.3 x.
a.
Draw the regression line for the first and second regression.
b. Write an
interpretation for the slope coefficient in the first and second regression. Be
specific.
c.

11. (9 points) A
and B are graphical representations of normally distributed random variables X
and Y, respectively, with relative positions, shapes, and sizes as shown. Which
of the following statements about X and Y are true and which one is false?
Explain your answer.
a. Y has a smaller standard deviation than X.
b. The probability that Y falls within 2 standard deviations of
its mean is greater than the probability that X falls within 2 standard
deviations of its mean.
c. Y has a smaller mean than X.
