Use the following to answer the questions below:

Students in a small statistics course wanted to investigate if forearm length (in cm) was useful for predicting foot length (in cm). The data they collected are displayed in the provided scatterplot (with regression), and the computer output from the analysis is provided.

Use three decimal places when reporting the results from any calculations, unless otherwise specified.

The regression equation is Foot (cm) = 9.22 + 0.574 Forearm (cm)

A scatterplot with a regression line shows the relationship between forearm and foot. The horizontal axis is labeled, Forearm (centimeters) and has markings from 22 to 36 in increments of 2.  The vertical axis is labeled, Foot (centimeters) and has markings from 22 to 31 in increments of 1. A regression line starts from (23, 22.3), increases toward the right, and ends at (36, 30). The dots are randomly scattered throughout the graph, such that a few dots lie above the regression line, a few dots lie below the regression line, and a few dots lie on the regression line. The concentration of the dots is more between the points 26 and 30 on the horizontal axis and between the points, 23 and 25 on the vertical axis. The dots are plotted as follows: (23, 23), (24, 23), (26, 25), (27, 24), (28, 23), (29, 26), (29, 28), (29.5, 26), (29.5, 27), (30, 23), (32, 31), and (36, 29). All values are approximate.


When conducting inference for the population slope, it is most common to test if the population slope is different from zero. However, there are other situations where a different test might be more interesting. For instance, it is often said that the length of the forearm is roughly the same as the length of the foot (see, for example, the movie Pretty Woman). What population slope is implied by this statement, and what would the hypotheses for testing the accuracy of this claim look like?
