In 2009, the New York Yankees won 103 baseball games during the regular season. The table on the next page lists the number of victories (W), the earnedrun- average (ERA), and the batting average (AVG) of each team in the American League. The ERA is one measure of the effectiveness of the pitching staff, and a lower number is better. The batting average is one measure of effectiveness of the hitters, and a higher number is better.

Correlation: Compute a correlation matrix that includes all continuous variables. Identify all individual correlations that are significant at the 95 percent level. Regression: Build a multiple regression model to explain the variability in the median school year. Describe the goodness of fit of your model and summarize your findings. Select at least four to seven similar independent variables from the remaining forty-nine measures and justify your selection.
