    Explanation
    Page 1.9 shows the residual plot for the linear regression. Because it is a bowl, we know it can only be in quadrant 3 or 4. Looking at page 1.4, you can see it is in quadrant 3, and the equation for the line tells us that the slope is negative - that's quadrant 3 as well.

    Rate this question:

  • 31. 

    I see a residual plot for a linear regression line. It is shaped like a hill. This means

    • A.

      The residual plot is non-linear

    • B.

      The transformation is linear

    • C.

      A transformation may linearise my data

    • D.

      The linear regression is in quadrant 3 or 4

    • E.

      The linear regression is in quadrant 1 or 2

    Correct Answer(s)
    C. A transformation may linearise my data
    E. The linear regression is in quadrant 1 or 2
    Explanation
    The residual plot shaped like a hill suggests that the relationship between the variables is not linear. However, it is possible that a transformation of the data could make the relationship linear. Additionally, the fact that the linear regression is in quadrant 1 or 2 indicates that the relationship is positive.

    Rate this question:

  • 32. 

    The residual plot for a transformation is random. This tells me :

    • A.

      The transformation will be suitable to predict interpolated values

    • B.

      The transformation has linearised the data

    • C.

      The original data is linear

    • D.

      The linear regression is in quadrant 3 or 4

    • E.

      The linear regression is in quadrant 1 or 2

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. The transformation will be suitable to predict interpolated values
    B. The transformation has linearised the data
    Explanation
    The statement "The transformation will be suitable to predict interpolated values" is correct because a random residual plot indicates that the transformed data is well-behaved and can be used to predict values within the range of the data. The statement "The transformation has linearized the data" is also correct because a random residual plot suggests that the transformation has reduced any non-linear patterns in the data, making it more linear.

    Rate this question:

  • 33. 

    The residual plot for a transformation is a bowl shape. This tells me :

    • A.

      The transformation will be unsuitable to predict interpolated values

    • B.

      The transformation has linearised the data

    • C.

      The original data is linear

    • D.

      The linear regression is in quadrant 3 or 4

    • E.

      The linear regression is in quadrant 1 or 2

    Correct Answer
    A. The transformation will be unsuitable to predict interpolated values
    Explanation
    The residual plot for a transformation that has a bowl shape indicates that the transformation will be unsuitable to predict interpolated values. This is because a bowl-shaped residual plot suggests that the relationship between the predictor and response variables is not linear, and therefore, using this transformation to predict values within the range of the data may not be accurate or reliable.

    Rate this question:

  • 34. 

    I am looking at a residual plot for transformation. It is shaped like a hill. This tells me :

    • A.

      The transformation is linear

    • B.

      The transformation is in quadrant 1 or 2

    • C.

      The original data is linear

    • D.

      The linear regression is in quadrant 1 or 2

    • E.

      It only tells me the transformation didn't linearse the data

    Correct Answer
    E. It only tells me the transformation didn't linearse the data
    Explanation
    The residual plot shaped like a hill indicates that the transformation did not linearize the data. This means that the relationship between the variables is not linear and cannot be adequately represented by a straight line. The other statements, such as the transformation being linear or in quadrant 1 or 2, or the original data being linear, cannot be inferred from the given information about the residual plot.

    Rate this question:

  • 35.
