g. Summarize the results.

5. The data below were obtained for the years 1993 through 1998 and indicate the number of fireworks (in millions) used and the related injuries. Predict the number of injuries (provided there is a significant relationship) if 100 million fireworks are used during a given year
Number of fireworks in use x 67.6 87.1 117 115 118 113 
Related injuries y 12.100 12.600 12.500 10.900 7.800 7000 

6. A researcher wishes to determine whether a person’s age is related to the number of hours he or she jogs per week. The data for the sample are shown below. Predict the number of hours jogged per week (provided there is a significant relationship) for a 50-year-old person. 
Age x 34 22 48 56 62 
Hours jogged y 5.5 7 3.5 3 1 

7. If r = 0.15, find the coefficients of determination and nondetermination and explain the meaning of each. 

8. Using the age and sick days data from question 2, compute the standard error of the estimate. 

9. Using the age and sick days data from question 2, find the 98% prediction interval when x = 47 years
