Marlin’s breeding gives data on the number of breeding pairs of marlins in an isolated area in each of seven years and the percent of males who returned the next year. The data show that the percent returning is lower after successful breeding seasons and that the relationship is roughly linear. The figure below shows Minitab regression output for these data.

(a) What is the equation of the least-squares regression line for predicting the percent of males that return from the number of breeding pairs? Use the equation to predict the percent of returning males after a season with 30 breeding pairs.

(b) What percent of the year-to-year variation in percent of returning males is accounted for by the straight-line relationship with number of breeding pairs the previous year?

(c) Use the information in the figure to find the correlation r between percent of males that return and number of breeding pairs. How do you know whether the sign of r is + or −?

(d) Interpret the value of s in this setting.
