When you are given a data set in a SAC, which app should you use put it into your calculator
Explanation
In a Statistical Analysis Calculator (SAC), the "bivarenterdata" app should be used to input a data set into the calculator. This app is specifically designed for handling bivariate data, which involves two variables. By using this app, users can easily enter and analyze the given data set in the calculator, allowing for various statistical calculations and interpretations to be made.
2.

The values of the data in a table format can be checked on page 1.3. This page likely contains a table where the values are displayed and can be reviewed. It is important to always verify the entered values to ensure accuracy and avoid any potential errors.
5.
I need to look at the scatter plot of the bivariate data to determine which quadrant it might fit into. Which page would I go to?
Explanation
To determine which quadrant the bivariate data might fit into, one would need to refer to the scatter plot. The scatter plot is a graphical representation of the data points on a coordinate plane. By examining the placement of the points on the scatter plot, one can determine in which quadrant the data falls. Therefore, to find the scatter plot and determine the quadrant, the person would go to page 1.4.

If x is 70, what is log(x)? (2 decimal places)
Explanation
The value of log(x) is the exponent to which the base (in this case, 10) must be raised to obtain the value x. In this case, if x is 70, then log(70) is approximately 1.85.
21.
If x is 22, what is the reciprocal of x? (3 decimal places)
Explanation
The reciprocal of a number is obtained by taking the reciprocal of the number itself. In this case, the reciprocal of 22 is 1/22, which is equal to 0.045 when rounded to three decimal places.
22.
If x is 15, what is the square of x?
Explanation
The square of a number is obtained by multiplying the number by itself. In this case, x is given as 15. So, the square of 15 is calculated by multiplying 15 by itself, which equals 225.
23.
If y is 10, what is the reciprocal of y? (1 decimal place)
Explanation
The reciprocal of a number is obtained by dividing 1 by that number. In this case, the number y is given as 10. So, the reciprocal of 10 would be 1/10, which can be written as 0.1.
24.
If y is 30, what is the log of y? (2 decimal places)
Explanation
The log of a number is the exponent to which a base must be raised to obtain that number. In this case, if y is 30, the log of y would be the exponent to which a base must be raised to obtain 30. Therefore, the log of 30 is 1.48 (rounded to 2 decimal places).
25.
If y is 22, what is y squared?

Using the Data Set 135 :The residual plot for the x squared transformation indicates that :
Correct Answer
A. The transformation is non-linear
Explanation
Page 1.16 - zoom the data and see that it has a pattern. That makes the transformation non linear.
27.
Using the Data Set 135 : The residual plot for the 1/x transformation indicates that :
Correct Answer(s)
B. The transformation is linear
C. The transformation is suitable for accurate interpolation
Explanation
Page 1.22 and see the residual is random, meaning the transformation is linear, and suitable for predictions within the data set.
28.
Using the Dataset 135:The residual plot for the log(y) transformation indicates that :
Correct Answer
A. The transformation is non-linear
Explanation
Page 1.28 has the residual plot for the log y transformations - showing a pattern. This means the transformation did not linearise the data.
29.
Using the Dataset 135:The residual plot for the y squared transformation indicates that :
Correct Answer
A. The transformation is non-linear
Explanation
Page 1.25 shows the residual plot for the y squared transformation - and it has a pattern. This means the transformation hasn't linearized.
30.
Using the Dataset 135:The residual plot for the linear regression indicates that :
Correct Answer(s)
A. The original data is non linear
D. The linear regression is in quadrant 3 or 4
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.
31.
I see a residual plot for a linear regression line. It is shaped like a hill. This means
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.
32.
The residual plot for a transformation is random. This tells me :
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.
33.
The residual plot for a transformation is a bowl shape. This tells me :
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.
34.
I am looking at a residual plot for transformation. It is shaped like a hill. This tells me :
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.
