## The basket ball coach at a small local college believes that his team plays better and scores more points in front of larger crowds. The number of points scored and attendance for all home games last season are reported here. Do these data support the coach’s argument? Game Point scored Attendance 1 54 378 2 57 350 3 59 320 4 80 478 5 82 451 6 75 250 7 73 489 8 53 451 9 67 410 10 78 215 11 67 113 12 56 250 13 85 450 14 101 489 15 99 472

To determine

To show:

The given data supports coach’s argument.

### Explanation of Solution

Given:

The given statement is,

The number of points scored and attendance for all home games last season are reported.

The given table of information is,

 Game Point scored Attendance 1 54 378 2 57 350 3 59 320 4 80 478 5 82 451 6 75 250 7 73 489 8 53 451 9 67 410 10 78 215 11 67 113 12 56 250 13 85 450 14 101 489 15 99 472

Approach:

The Y intercept (a) is the point of intersection of the regression line and the y axis.

The slope (b) of the regression line is the amount of change in the dependent variable (Y) by a unit change in the independent variable (X).

If the two variables are unrelated, the regression line would be parallel to the x axis.

Formula used:

The model for the least square regression line is defined as,

Y=a+bX

Where Y is the dependent variable,

X is the independent variable,

a is the Y intercept of the regression line

and, b is the slope of the regression line.

The formula for calculating the correlation coefficient r is given as,

r=(XX¯)(YY¯)[(XX¯)2][(YY¯)2]

Where X and Y are the two variables

And X¯ and Y¯ are their respective means.

Calculation:

From the given information,

The Point scored is the dependent variable. Thus, it is represented as Y.

The Attendance is the independent variables. Thus, it is as X.

Consider the following table of sum of squares of democrat and voter turnout.

 Case Attendance (X) (X−X¯) (X−X¯)2 Point scored (Y) (Y−Y¯) (Y−Y¯)2 (X−X¯)(Y−Y¯) 1 378 6.933 48.0665 54 −18.4 338.56 −127.57 2 350 −21.067 443.818 57 −15.4 237.16 324.432 3 320 −51.067 2607.84 59 −13.4 179.56 684.298 4 478 106.933 11434.7 80 7.6 57.76 812.691 5 451 79.933 6389.28 82 9.6 92.16 767.357 6 250 −121.07 14657.2 75 2.6 6.76 −314.77 7 489 117.933 13908.2 73 0.6 0.36 70.7598 8 451 79.933 6389.28 53 −19.4 376.36 −1550.7 9 410 38.933 1515.78 67 −5.4 29.16 −210.24 10 215 −156.07 24356.9 78 5.6 31.36 −873.98 11 113 −258.07 66598.6 67 −5.4 29.16 1393.56 12 250 −121.07 14657
