The hypothetical data below are from a toxicity study designed to measure the effectiveness of different doses of a pesticide on mosquitoes. The table below summarizes the concentration of the pesticide, the sample sizes, and the number of critters dispatched.
a. Make a scatterplot of the proportions of mosquitoes killed versus the pesticide concentration.
c. The point at which the dose kills 50% of the pests is sometimes called LD50, for “Lethal dose 50%.” What would you estimate to be LD50 for this pesticide when used on mosquitoes?
