Question:

Using the heights and weights described in Exercise 1, the linear correlation coefficient r is 0.394. Find the value of the coefficient of determination. What practical information does the coefficient of determination provide? 


Data in Exercise 1

Using Data Set 1 “Body Data” in Appendix B, if we let the predictor variable x represent heights of males and let the response variable y represent weights of males, the sample of 153 heights and weights results in se = 16.27555 cm. In your own words, describe what that value of se represents.
