Data for a sample of college players eligible to enter the National Football League include weight (pounds) and time (seconds) required to sprint 40 yards. Using the data listed in file XR03068, and with weight as the x (indepen dent) variable and time as the y (dependent) variable, generate a scatter diagram, fit a linear equation to the diagram, then determine and interpret the coefficients of correlation and determination.
A computer and statistical software will be desirable and useful. However, any necessary calculations can also be done with the aid of a pocket calculator. For readers using statistical software, keep in mind the file-naming key— for example, the data for Exercise 3.57 will be in data file XR03057.
