12. I am trying to predict the weight of a newborn given some information about its mother and

prenatal care. WT is the birth weight, it is the criterion. MWT is the mothers weight before getting

pregnant, WTGN is how much weight the mother gained during pregnancy, SMK is how many

cigarettes a day the mother smoked during pregnancy, and PRN is how far into the pregnancy the

mother was when she began receiving prenatal care. Here is a correlation matrix of the correlations

between pairs of variables Use this matrix to answer the following question.

WT 1.000

MWT 0.674 1.000

SMK -0.962 -0.947 1.000

WTGN 0.239 0.258 -0.442 1.000
