From where he stands, one step forward will send him tumbling down. What is the probability that he can escape unharmed?
View Resource Linear Regression Applet

This applet allows a person to add up to 50 points onto its green viewing screen. After each point is added by clicking on the screen with the mouse, a red line will appear. This red line represents a line passing through (Average x, Average y) with a slope that can be altered by clicking the Left or Right buttons. The slope of this line may also be changed by dragging the mouse either right or...
