# Data Representation

1.The following data represent the number of calories per serving and

the number of grams of sugar per serving for a random sample of high -fiber

cerals. Here are the data to test this claim.

Calories, x 200 210 170 190 200 180 210 210 210

190

190 200

Sugar, y 18 23 17 20 18 19 23

17 12 11 11

a. Determine the least-squares regression equation from the sample

data.

b. Compute the standard error of y'

c. Compute the standard error of the slope "b" (note y' = a+bx)

d. Construct a 95% confidence interval about the slope.
