## A Researcher Conducts An Experiment To Examine The Relationship

*Use Minitab to estimate the regression model and store the residual values. Do the residuals support the assumption of normality?

(20 points) A researcher conducts an experiment to examine the relationship between the weight gain of chickens whose diets had been supplemented by different amounts of amino acid lysine and the amount of lysine ingested. Since the percentage of lysine is known, and we can monitor the amount of feed consumed, we can determine the amount of lysine eaten.
