# Question: James Jesse the head of the Bureau of Animal Husbandry

James Jesse, the head of the Bureau of Animal Husbandry, perceives that several agencies received large increases in appropriations last year because they encouraged interest groups to testify for them before the House Appropriations Committee. The accompanying sample data for five agencies similar to Jesse’s were gathered. Using regression analysis, calculate a regression equation. Does a relationship exist? The Bureau of Animal Husbandry could pressure 15 groups to testify for it. What percentage increase in appropriation would this number of groups predict? Place a 90% confidence interval around that estimate. How large an increase is each additional interest group worth?
