14. “Guilt and focusing on decision making” (Gangemi & Mancini, Journal of Behavioral
Decision Making, Vol 20, Jan 2007) reported on 171 volunteer students participating in an
experiment where each was randomly assigned to one of three groups. One group was made to
feel guilty, one group was made to feel angry, and the third group was not influenced.
Immediately after reaching these emotional states, the students were asked to decide whether or
not to spend lots of money to repair a very old car (not a “historic”/antique). The “stated” option
was “spend the money to repair the car”. The following raw data was recorded:
Emotional State

option:

(https://www.symantec.com/security-center/threat-report), “spear-phishing” cyberattacks against
American small businesses are steadily increasing. 18% of all “spear-phishing” cyberattacks
against American businesses in 2011 targeted businesses with less than 250 employees. In 2015,
43% of all “spear-phishing” cyberattacks against American businesses targeted businesses with
less than 250 employees.
(a) Which of the following linear equations could be used to predict annual percentage of
all “spear-phishing” cyberattacks against US businesses that target “small” businesses
(“y”) in a given year “x” since 2011, where x = 0 represents the year 2011?
Explain/show work.
. = 0.16 + 18 . = 0.16 + 2011 . = 6.25 + 18 . = 6.25 + 2011 (b) Use the equation from part (a) to predict the percentage of all “spear-phishing”
cyberattacks against US businesses that will target “small” businesses in the year 2018.
Round answer to nearest tenth of a percent. Show work.
(c) Fill in the blanks to interpret the slope of the equation: The rate of change of percent
of all “spear-phishing” cyberattacks against US businesses that target “small” businesses
with respect to time is __________ per ___________. (Include units of measurement.)
