Question 7 of 17
1.0/ 1.0 Points
An agent for a residential real estate company in a large city would like to be able to predict the
monthly rental cost of apartments based on the size of the apartment. Data for a sample of 25
apartments in a particular neighborhood are provided in the worksheet Apartments in the Excel
workbook Apartments.xlsx.
Apartments.xlsx
At the .05 level of significance determine if the correlation between rental cost and apartment
size is significant.
A. No, there is not a statistically significant linear relationship between monthly rental
cost and apartment size, because the sample correlation coefficient is less than .95.
B. Yes, there is a statistically significant linear relationship between monthly rental cost
and apartment size, because the ttest value, 7.74, is greater than the critical value 1.96.
C. Yes, there is a statistically significant linear relationship between monthly rental cost
and apartment size, because the sample correlation coefficient 0.85 exceeds 0.50.
D. Yes, there is a statistically significant linear relationship between monthly rental cost
and apartment size, because the pvalue for this test is less than .0001.
