Question

Use the model to make the appropriate prediction.

A sociologist wanted to determine whether there was a relation between a state's poverty rate (x) and its teen pregnancy rate (y). Data from all 50 states produced the regression model:

yˆ=4.3+1.4(x)

What does the model suggest for the poverty rate of Florida, which has a poverty rate of 16.6?

a) 9.2%

b) 27.5%

c) 12.9%

d) 17%

e) 22.4%

Step 1

In this question, we have a regression model equation using which we have to predict the teen pregnancy rate(y) when the Florida’s poverty rate is 16.6.

Step 2

The calculation for the teen pregnancy rates in florida has shown b...
