ten old subjects on both a memory test (MT) and a vocabulary test (VT). In both cases the
Higher the score the better the performance.

1. A researcher hypothesized that the young would better on both the memory
and the vocabulary tests. Is there evidence to support her hypotheses?
2. Is there a relation between memory and vocabulary performance?
3. What VT score would you predict for a subject with a MT score of 9?
What restrictions would you place on the prediction?
4. Should the same regression line be used to predict the vocabulary scores from
the memory scores for both the young and the old?
5. Is the strength of the relation between MT and VT different for young and old?
6. Illustrate how you might convert question #2 into a Chi-Squared question.
How do the answers differ and why?
