HYPATIA (370  415): First "known" female mathematician. Like her father, Theon of Alexandria, Hypatia was a Pythagorean, a Platonist, and a pagan. She was an outstanding mathematician and teacher during a time when women were not supposed to exercise such qualities. She was brutally murdered by Christian zealots. Do some research and learn about why Hypatia finds a place in the history of mathematics. 
Answer: A cocky roach. Herky 's friends: DORA JAR ... she likes to have entrances and exits open all the time. STAN DING ...you can never get this guy to sit down. 
Reading: Review previous readings, as necessary. Exercises: 3.28, 3.30, 3.31, 3.33, 3.34, 3.45 (page 161)

You are working with problems relating to Sections3.1, 3.2, and 3.3.
Be able to interpret the slope of the leastsquareregression line. Example 3.10 on pages 141142, you find aleastsquares regression line y(hat) = 1.0892 + .1890x. Aninterpretation of the slope (.1890) is provided. Sometimes thealgebraic identity x = 1/(1/x) can be useful in rewriting the slope.For instance, .1890 = 1/(1/1.1890) = 1/5.29. The LSRL can then bewritten
y(hat) =1.0892 + (1/5.29
)x.
This allows for this interpretation of the slope:On the average, a one unit increase in the yvariable results in a5.29 increase in the xvariable. In some situations, this rewritingof the slope may make it easier to interpret. For instance, if aslope of a LSRL is equal to .0045, this can be written as 1/222(approximately), meaning that, on the average, a 1 unit increase inthe y variable results in a decrease of 222 units in thexvariable.
