a) Create a scatter plot for this data using population as the explanatory variable.
(8 points)
b) Calculate the correlation coefficient and coefficient of determination. Record those
values below. ( 4 points)
c) Using the scatter plot and value of the correlation coefficient determine the direction,
form, and strength of the relationship between population and solid waste. (4 points)
d) Identify any outliers in this data set. (2 points)
e) Create the least squares regression line (LSRL) for this data set. (4 points)
f) Using the LSRL, predict the amount of solid waste that would be produced by a county
with a population of 75, XXXXXXXXXXpoints)
