Colleges use SAT scores in the admissions process because they believe these scores provide some insight into how a high school student will perform at the college level. Suppose the entering freshmen at a certain college have mean combined SAT Scores of \$1222,\$ with a standard deviation of \$123 .\$ In the first semester, these students attained a mean \$G P A\$ of \$2.66,\$ with a standard deviation of \$0.56 .\$ Ascatterplot showed the association to be reasonably linear, and the correlation between \$S A T\$ score and \$G P A\$ was 0.49 .a) Write the equation of the regression line.b) Explain what the \$y\$ -intercept of the regression line indicates.c) Interpret the slope of the regression line.d) Predict the GPA of a freshman who scored a combined 1400e) Based upon these statistics, how effective do you think SAT scores would be in predicting academic success during the first semester of the freshman year at this college?

A university conducted an analysis of the relationship between Math SAT scores (ranging from 200 to 800) and first-year GPAs (ranging from 0 to 4.0) for students who completed their first year. The average SAT score is 540 with a standard deviation (SD) of 78, and the average GPA is 2.5 with a SD of 0.55. The correlation coefficient is found to be 0.75.

a) If a student is chosen at random and has an SAT score of 652, use regression to predict this student’s GPA.b) Assuming that both SAT scores and GPAs follow a normal distribution, predict the percentile rank of another student’s GPA given that their SAT percentile rank is 91.15 percent.
