2. r=0.1,n=500 r=0.8,n=5 A biologist is studying the levels of heavy metal contaminants among a population of the South Nakaratuan Chubby Bat. The biologist is interested in constructing a simple linear regression
model to investigate the relationship between weight of an animal and the level of heavy metal
contamination. In the proposed regression model the level of contaminant is the response
variable and weight is the explanatory variable. The contaminant level is measured in parts per
billion (ppb) and weight in grams. The SPSS output is given below. Use the output to answer the

linear regression model between contaminant level and weight?
(b) What is the correlation between contaminant level and weight?
(c) What is the predicted contaminant level for an animal weighted 150 grams? (d) One of the animals in this analysis had a weight of 145 grams and contaminant level of
222 ppb. What is the residual for this observation?
(e) What is least squares regression line?
(f) What is the average change in contaminant level when the weight of an animal is
increased by 1 gram?
(g) Construct a 99% confidence interval for the regression slope.
(h) The biologist wants to determine whether there is a positive linear association between
contaminant level and weight of an animal. Write down the appropriate hypotheses,
