Bardi Trucking Company, located in Cleveland, Ohio, makes deliveries in the Great Lakes region, the Southeast, and the Northeast. Jim Bardi, the president, is studying the relationship between the distance a shipment must travel and the length of time, in days, it takes the shipment to arrive at its destination. To investigate, Mr. Bardi selected a random sample of 20 shipments made last month. Shipping distance is the independent variable, and shipping time is the dependent variable. The results are as follows:

ship dist miles ship time ship dis miles ship time
days days

Question 1: The Bardi Trucking Co. located in Cleveland Ohio, makes deliveries in the great Laes region, the southeast and the Northeast. Jim Bardi, the president, is studying the relationship between the distance a ship must travel and the length of time, in days; it takes the shipment to arrive at its destination. To investigate, Mr. Bardi selected a random sample of 20 shipments made last month. Shipping distance is the independent variable, and shipping time is the dependent variable, the results are as follows:

Ques A. Determine and interpret the coefficient of determination.
QuesB. What would be the estimated shipping time for a distance of 715 miles?

Ques. 2. A sample of 12 homes sold last week in St. Paul Minnesota, is selected. The results are shown below.

Home size Selling Price Home size Selling Price
(Thousands of sq. feet) (\$thousands) (Thousands of sq ft) (\$Thousands)
1.4 100 1.3 110
1.3 110 0.8 85
1.2 105 1.2 105
1.1 120 0.9 75
1.4 80 1.1 70
1.0 105 1.1 95

Ques A: Determine AND INTERPRET THE COEEFICIENT OF DETERMINATION.

Quesb: What would be the estimated selling price of a home that has 1.0 thousand square feet?

PS: Any tips/pointers you can give for how to go about interpreting the coeeficient etc when it comes to linear Regression & Correlation so it's easier for me to understand?say in pointer form? Thanks
