Oil and residuals The Trans-Alaska Oil Pipeline is a tube that is formed from 1/2-inch-thick steel and that carries oil across 800 miles of sensitive arctic and subarctic terrain. The pipe segments and the welds that join them were carefully examined before installation. How accurate are field measurements of the depth of small defects? The figure below compares the results of measurements on 100 defects made in the field with measurements of the same defects made in the laboratory.20 The line y = x is drawn on the scatterplot.

(a) Describe the overall pattern you see in the scatterplot, as well as any deviations from that pattern.

(b) If field and laboratory measurements all agree, then the points should fall on the y = x line drawn on the plot, except for small variations in the measurements. Is this the case? Explain.

(c) The line drawn on the scatterplot (y = x) is not the least-squares regression line. How would the slope and y intercept of the least-squares line compare? Justify your answer.
