© The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000 11-19 11-3 11-3 Example Test the significance of the correlation coefficient for the age and blood pressure data. Use  = 0.05 and r = 0.897. Step 1: Step 1: State the hypotheses. H 0 :  = 0 H 1 :  0

© The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000 11-20 Step 2: Step 2: Find the critical values. Since  = 0.05 and there are 6 – 2 = 4 degrees of freedom, the critical values are t = +2.776 and t = –2.776. Step 3: Step 3: Compute the test value. t = 4.059 (verify). 11-3 11-3 Example

© The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000 11-21 Step 4: Step 4: Make the decision. Reject the null hypothesis, since the test value falls in the critical region (4.059 > 2.776). Step 5: Step 5: Summarize the results. There is a significant relationship between the variables of age and blood pressure. 11-3 11-3 Example

© The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc., 2000 11-22 The scatter plot for the age and blood pressure data displays a linear pattern. We can model this relationship with a straight line. This regression line is called the line of best fit or the regression line. The equation of the line is y = a + bx. 11-4 Regression

Substituting into the formulas give a = 81.048 and b = 0.964 (verify). Hence, y = 81.048 + 0.964x. ainterceptb slope Note, a represents the intercept and b the slope of the line.

Caution: Caution: Use x values within the experimental region when predicting y values.

Since y = 81.048 + 0.964x, then y = 81.048 + 0.964(50) = 129.248  129.2 Note that the value of 50 is within the range of x values. 
