Athletes are constantly seeking measures of the degree of their cardiovascular fitness prior to a major race. Athletes want to know when their training is at a level that will produce a peak performance. One such measure of fitness is the time to exhaustion from running on a treadmill at a specified angle and speed. The important question is then “ Does this measure of cardiovascular fitness translate into performance in a 10- km running race?” Twenty experienced distance runners who professed to be at top condition were evaluated on the treadmill and then had their times recorded in a 10- km race. The data are given here.
a. Plot the data in a scatterplot.
b. Fit a regression model to the data. Does a linear model seem appropriate?
c. Obtain the estimated linear regression model  = β0 + β1.
