a. Construct a scatterplot of strength (y) versus diameter (x). Verify that a linear model is appropriate.

b. Compute the least-squares line for predicting strength from diameter.

c. Compute the fitted value and the residual for each point.

d. If the diameter is increased by 0.3 mm, by how much would you predict the strength to increase or decrease?

e. Predict the strength for a diameter of 5.5 mm.

f. Can the least-squares line be used to predict the strength for a diameter of 8 mm? If so, predict the strength. If not, explain why not.

g. For what diameter would you predict a strength of 95 kN/mm?
