    2.49 The file VeggieBurger contains data on the calories and total fat (in grams per serving) for a sample of 12 veggie burgers.
    a. Construct a scatter plot with calories on the X axis and total fat on the Y axis.
    b. What conclusions can you reach about the relationship between the calories and total fat in the veggie burgers?
    (see attachment for table)

    3.13 Is there a difference in the variation of the yields of different types of investments? The file CDRate contains the yields for a one-year certificate of deposit (CD) and a five-year certificate of deposit (CD) and a five-year certificate of deposit (CD) for 23 banks in the US, as of April 4, 2011.
    a. For one-year and five year CDs, separately compute the variance, standard deviation, range and coefficient of variation.
    b. Based on the results of (a), do one-year or five-year CDs have more variation in the yields offered? Explain.
