Posted by jamal on Friday, February 3, 2012 at 6:53pm.

You have a hot grill and an empty hamburger bun, but you have sworn off greasy hamburgers. Would a meatless hamburger do? The data for 12 brands of meatless hamburger were collected. Calories, fat, and sodium in these meatless hamburgers were used to predict taste score (between 0 and 100). The correlation between fat and calories is r = 0.828. How might this model be improved?
