QUESTION 1

A survey was conducted at a local supermarket relating the distance that shoppers lived from the store to the average number of times they shopped at the store in a week. The results are shown in the table below

Distance from the store in km 1 2 3 4 5 7 8 10

Average number of times shopped per week

12 10 7 7 6 2 3 2

1

1.1 Use the scatter plot to comment on the strength of the relationship between the distance a shopper lived from the store and the average number of times she/he shopped at the store in a week.(1)

1.2 Calculate the correlation coefficient of the data. (1)

1.3 Calculate the equation of the least squares regression line of the data.(3)

1.4 Use your answer at QUESTION 1.3 to estimate the average number of times that a shopper living 6 km from the supermarket will visit the store in a week. (2)

QUESTION 2

The heights of 160 learners in a school are measured. The height of the shortest learner is 1,39 m and the height of the tallest learner is 2,21 m. The heights are represented in the histogram below.

2.5 Eighty learners are less than x metres in height. Estimate x. (2)

2.6 The person taking the measurements only had a 1,5 m measuring tape available. In order to compensate for the short measuring tape, he decided to mount the tape on a wall at a height of 1 m above the ground. After recording the measurements he discovered that the tape was mounted at 1,1 m above the ground instead of 1 m.
