INDIVIDUAL ASSIGNMENT 5:
REGRESSION & CORRELATION

– A CASE STUDY

Question 1
A biologist assumes that there is a linear relationship between the amount of

fertilizer supplied to tomato plants and the subsequent yield of tomato
obtained.

Eight tomato plants, of the same variety, were selected at random and
treated, weekly, with a solution in which x grams of fertilizer was dissolved in a
fixed quantity of water. The yield, y kilograms, of tomato was recorded.

(a) By using Data Analysis ToolPack in Microsoft Excel, shows the finding. (10

marks)

(b) State the equation of the least squares regression based on your finding.

(2 marks)

(c) Based on the findings, interpret the results, in-term of R square,

Significance F, coefficients and residuals. (20 marks)

(d) Estimate the yield of plant treated, weekly, with 3.2 grams of fertilizer. (2

marks)

(e) Indicate why it may not be appropriate to use your equation to predict the

yield of a plant treated, weekly, with 20 grams of fertilizer. (1 mark)
