QUESTION 5
a) By using the calculator, we have
x = 647 , x 2
= 44279 , y = 656 , y 2
= 44884 , xy = 44435 A2
n = 10 ,
Sum of squares:
(647)(656)
S xy = 44435  = 1991.8 M1
10
(647) 2
S xx = 44279  = 2418.1 M1
10
(656) 2
S yy = 44884  = 1850.4 M1
10
Therefore,
1991.8
b1 = = 0.8237 M1
2418.1
647 656
x= = 64.7 , y = = 65.6 , b0 = 65.6  (0.82)(64.7) = 12.3066 M1
10 10
The fitted linear regression line is,
y = 12.3066 + 0.8237 x A1
b) b1 = 0.8237
This means the score of Test 1 increased by one mark, the score of Test 2 would increase by 0.8237
marks. A1
When x = 60 ,
y = 12.3066 + 0.8237(60) = 61.7286 A1
c) To determine the linear relationship of Test 1 and Test 2, the hypothesis to be tested is:
H 0 : b1 = 0
M1
H1 : b1 0
b1
The tstatistic is t =
Var ( b1 )
Where
S  b1S xy 1
Var ( b1 ) = yy
n2
S xx
1850.4  (0.8237)(1991.8) 1
= = 0.0108 A1
8 2418.1
Hence,
b1 0.8237
t= = = 7.9261 A1
Var ( b1 ) 0.0108
The critical tvalue for a = 0.05 and ( n  2) = (10  2) = 8 degrees of freedom is
t 0.025 ,8 = 2.306 . Compare the tstatistic 7.9261 with t 0.025,8 = 2.306 . A1
Since tstatistic > 0.025,8
t = 2.306 , we reject H 0 and conclude b1 0 . A1
Hence, Test 1 is linearly related to Test 2. A1
S xy 1991.8
r= = = 0.9416 M1 A1
S xx S yy ( 2418.1)(1850.4)
There are a strong positive relationship between the marks obtained in Test 1 and Test 2. A1
