A study by Triller et al. (A-14) examined the length of time required for home health-care nurses to
repackage a patient’s medications into various medication organizers (i.e., pill boxes). For the 19 patients
in the study, researchers recorded the time required for repackaging of medications. They also recorded
the number of problems encountered in the repackaging sessions.

Only pages 1-3 are available for preview. Some parts have been intentionally blurred. b1= for each additional one problem encountered there is an average increase of 1.8 min spent repackaging by nurse.
d. Use the regression equation developed to predict the time spent for a nurse who has 10
problems.

e. Determine the coefficient of correlation r. Interpret its meaning in this application.
r=.617 tells you that there is a moderately strong association (linear) between number of
problems encountered and repackaging time.
f. Determine the coefficient of determination r2 and interpret its meaning in the context of this
application.
r2=0.38 38% of the variation in the repackaging time is explained by the variation in the
number of problems encountered by a nurse.
g. Determine the standard error of the estimate and interpret its meaning in the context of this
application.
SYX= 7.081 is the standard deviation of the observed repackaging times spent (by nurses)
around the line of regression. 95% of the observed times spent will fall within 2 x 7.081of
the least squares line (regression line).
h. At the 0.01 level of significance, is there evidence of a linear relationship between the time
spent and the number of topics researched?
Perform the t test for the significance of slope between number of problems encountered
and time spent by nurses repackaging. (2 tail. test)
H0:=0 there is not a linear relationship between repackaging time and number of
problems encountered.
H1:≠0 there is a linear relationship between repackaging time and number of problems
encountered.
