How much should a healthy shetland pony weigh? Let X be the age of the ponies in months and y be the average weight of the ponies, in kilograms.

X: 3 6 12 18 24

y: 60 95 140 170 185

A} make a scatter diagram and draw the line you think best fits the data.

B} would you say the correlation is low, moderate or strong? positive or negative?

C} use a calculator to verify Ex=63, Ex^2 = 1089, Ey = 650,

Ey^2 = 95,350, and Exy = 9930.Compute r. As x increases does the value of r imply that y should tend to increase or decrease? Explain.
