Someday the United States might convert to the metric system, and if we ever do, people will need to know how to convert measurements from feet and inches into meters and centimeters. Given that: 1 meter = 39.37 inches
a. Write an equation to convert height given in inches (X) to height expressed in meters (Y). What is the value of the intercept for this equation? What is the value of the slope?
1 inch = 1/39.37 meters = .0254
b. Use this equation to convert your own height from inches to meters.
c. What would you expect the correlation between height in inches (X) and height in meters (Y) to be?
