A. Use Excel or Megastat to determine the following correlations of analysis:

X 2 3 5 5 10
y 6 9 14 16 30

a. Place the Excel or Megastat results here:

b. What is the coefficient of correlation? (place in box)

c. What is the coefficient of determination? (place in box)

B. What is the relationship between the amount spent per week on food and the
size of family? Do larger families spend on more food? The following data is the amount of family size and amount spent for food.
