Question
1. Baseball stadiums vary in age, style, size, and in many other ways. Fans might think of the size of the stadium in terms of the number of seats; while the player might measure the size of the stadium by the distance from the homplate to the centerfield fence. Note: CF = distance from homeplate to centerfield fence.
Using the Excell add-in construct your scatter diagram with the data set provide below.
CF Seats
420 38805
400 41118
400 56000
400 45030
400 34077

Is there a relationship between these two measurements for the “size” of the 30 Major League Baseball stadiums?
a. Before you run your scatter diagram answer the following: What do you think you will find? Bigger fields have more seats? Smaller fields have more seats? No relationship exists between field size and number of seats? A strong relationship exists between field size and number of seats? Explain.
