1.The following table presents the monthly consumption (C) and income (I) of 5 families, in Jordanian Dinars:

(C) (I)

290 400

210 230

200 200

150 220

250 450

A) Plot the data;

B) Write the estimated simple regression model;

C) What is the estimated consumption when the income is 500?

**drwls**, Monday, May 25, 2009 at 2:19pmThe plotting and regression-fitting tool at this site should help you:

http://science.kennesaw.edu/~plaval/applets/LRegression.html

Using this site and entering the C and I values in a table provided, I get the best linear fit to be

C = 0.368 I + 131.524

For I = 500, this results in C = 315.5

**drwls**, Monday, May 25, 2009 at 2:26pmI made a mistake reading the results of that Java applet that was referenced.

The constant value in that regression fit should be

b = 109.59107,

which makes the best fit

C = 0.368 I + 109.59

Fot I = 500, C = 293.6

The plotting of the graph is also something you will have to do yourself.
