Quality_i = beta_0 + beta_1 times particulates_i + epsilon_i where the deviations epsilon_j were assumed to be independent and normally distributed with mean 0 and standard deviation sigma. This model was fit to the data using the method of least squares. The following results were obtained from statistical software based on a sample of size 61. R^2 = 0.005, S = 0.7896 Is there strong evidence (and if so, why?) that there is a straight-line dependence between the amount of particulates and water quality? Select one: Yes, because the confidence interval for the slope includes zero. Yes, because the slope of the least-squares line is not zero. No, because the confidence interval for the slope includes zero. It is impossible to say because we are not given the actual value of the correlation.
