Textbook Problem

**Veterinary Science: Shetland Ponies** How much should a healthy Shetland pony weigh? Let *x* be the age of the pony (in months), and let *y* be the average weight of the pony (in kilograms). The following information is based on data taken from *The Merck Veterinary Manual* (a reference used in most veterinary colleges).

x |
3 | 6 | 12 | 18 | 24 |

y |
60 | 95 | 140 | 170 | 185 |

(a) Make a scatter diagram and draw the line you think best fits the data.

(b) Would you say the correlation is low, moderate, or strong? positive or negative?

(c) Use a calculator to verify that
*r.* As *x* increases from 3 to 24 months, does the value of *r* imply that y should tend to increase or decrease? Explain.
