a) Construct a scatter plot for these data
b) Using alpha = 0.10, test for the significance of the regression slope
c) Construct a 90% confidence interval for the population slope.

Shoe Size / Weight
7.5 / 7.2
8.0 / 7.8
9.0 / 8.0
8.5 / 9.4
8.5 / 7.7
8.0 / 6.9
8.5 / 9.2
7.5 / 6.5
8.0 / 9.1
9.0 / 9.8

Shoe size on left. Weight on right. I am not sure how what this question truly wants from me or how I am supposed to set my equations up in order to get to the answers.
