Use the given number line to answer problems 1–8.

A number line that goes from 3 to 18. Point F is at 4, C is at 7, G at 9, A at 11, B at 12, D at 14, and E at 18 333444555666777888999101010111111121212131313141414151515161616171717181818

1.

Find the distance between point and each of the points on the number line.

2.

Find the total of all the distances listed for problem 1.

3.

Find the average of the distances that you found in problem 1.

4.

Which point on the number line is located the average distance away from point ?

5.

Find the distance between point and each of the points on the number line.

6.

Find the total of all the distances from point that you found in problem 5.

7.

Find the average of the distances that you found in problem 5.

8.

Is there an integer point on the number line located the average distance away from point ?

Set

9.

Create a scatterplot for the data in the table. Let “English Scores” be the independent variable and “History Scores” be the dependent variable for your work.

10.

Use technology to find the correlation coefficient between the English and History scores. Does your result indicate a strong or weak correlation? Explain.

11.

Would it be correct to claim that a change in one of the scores would cause the other one to change?

12.

Which linear function is the best model for the data? Explain why your choice is the best model for the data.

A.
a scatter graph with a positive sloped progression line xy
B.
a scatter graph with a positive sloped progression line xy
C.
a scatter graph with a positive sloped progression line xy

Use technology to find the correlation coefficient for problems 13–15. Then write the equation for the regression line.

16.

Which of the sets of data in problems 13–15 is the least correlated? Why?

Indicate if you agree or disagree with the statements in problems 17–18, and explain why.

17.

Ice cream sales and tomato production have a strong, positive correlation. Therefore, ice cream must cause tomato growth.

18.

The number of people camping and the number of oranges for sale have a strong, positive correlation. Therefore, when people go camping, it must cause more oranges to be at the store.
