Professor Grant Alexander wanted to find a linear model that relates the number of hours a student plays video games each week, h, to the cumulative grade-point average, G, of the student. He obtained a random sample of 10 full-time students at his college and asked each student to disclose the number of hours spent playing video games and the student’s cumulative grade-point average.

$\begin{matrix} \text{Hours of} & \text{Grade-point}\\ \text{Video Games} & \text{Average, $G$}\\ \text{per Week, $h$} & \text{ }\\ \hline \text{0} & \text{3.49}\\ \text{0} & \text{3.05}\\ \text{2} & \text{3.24}\\ \text{3} & \text{2.82}\\ \text{3} & \text{3.19}\\ \text{5} & \text{2.78}\\ \text{8} & \text{2.31}\\ \text{8} & \text{2.54}\\ \text{10} & \text{2.03}\\ \text{12} & \text{2.51}\\ \end{matrix}$

How many hours of video game playing do you think a student plays whose grade-point average is 2.40?

Solution

Verified$G(x)=-0.094x+ 3.278$

$2.4=-0.094(x)+ 3.278$

$0.094(x)=0.878$

$x= 9.34$
