(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?

The 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

• statistics (correction) -

I 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

thank you so much,but i need the solution i know its can be done on that site but the teacher wants to see the solution in details !

You will find the formulas at

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