The following data report the occupancy rates (%) and average room rates (\$) for the largest U.S. hotel markets (The Wall Street Journal Almanac 1998). We would like to know the linear relationship between the two rates with the occupancy rate in terms of average room rate.

1. Write out the estimated linear regression equation in the context of the problem.[2]
2. Are the two rates correlated? Justify it by testing the slope. Interpret your result. (Don’t forget to write the hypotheses, and don’t use the correlation coefficient as you have done in 1181)[3]
3. Provide a 95% interval estimate of the real average occupancy rate with an average room rate of \$90. Interpret the interval.[5]
4. Provide a 95% interval estimate of the real occupancy rate with an average room rate of \$90. Interpret the interval.[4]
5. Are the data homoscedastic? Justify it by using the appropriate graph and interpret the result.[3]
6. How does the result in part (e) affect parts (c) and (d)?[1]
