The least squares line for the relationship between the number of pounds overweight and the age at death from problem 56 was y-hat = -0.538X +63.085. Find the 90% prediction interval for a woman’s age at death given that the woman was 20 pounds overweight (n = 20, x-bar = 8.9, SSxx =2933.8, S = 5.3753).
