Suppose a random sample of 100 20-year-old men is selected from a population, and that these men’s height and weight are recorded. A regression of weight on height yields    "Weight" = -79.24 + 4.16 X Height, R2 = 0.72, SER = 12.6, (3.42) (.42)  where weight is measured in pounds and height is measured in inches. A man has a late growth spurt and grows 2 inches over the course of a year. Construct a 95% confidence interval for the person’s weight gain.
