b. does there appear to be a correlation between age and number days in the hospital? no Find the r value for this problem to verify your answer? R=.16

d.use the equation to predict the length of stay for a patient who is 32 years old. do you beleive this predicaiton is reliable? why or why not?

**MathGuru**, Tuesday, July 17, 2012 at 6:32pmYour answer appears to be the same as the book (except you are missing the "x" with .07). The difference is you rounded to two places, instead of three.

For d), substitute 32 for x into the regression equation and solve for predicted y.

I hope this helps.
