Question 1

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.

Seats CF

38805 420

Is there a relationship between these two measurements for the “size” of the 30 Major League Baseball stadiums? I would say that the majority of them are very close to the same size.

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.

I don’t think that there will be a relationship existing between field size and number of seats. I think that the number of seats just depends on average how many fans normally come to baseball games, and the popularity of the team.
