In the paper Total Body Composition by Dual Photon 153Gd Absorptiometry
In the paper “Total Body Composition by Dual-Photon (153Gd) Absorptiometry” (American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Vol. 40, pp. 834–839), R. Mazess et al. studied methods for quantifying body composition. Eighteen randomly selected adults were measured for percentage of body fat, using dual-photon absorptiometry. Each adult’s age and percentage of body fat are shown on the WeissStats CD.
a. Decide whether you can reasonably apply the regression t-test. If so, then also do part (b).
b. Decide, at the 5% significance level, whether the data provide sufficient evidence to conclude that the predictor variable is useful for predicting the response variable.
