**MathGuru**, Tuesday, July 17, 2012 at 6:32pmYour answer appears to be the same as the book (except you are missing the "x" with .07). The difference is you rounded to two places, instead of three.

For d), substitute 32 for x into the regression equation and solve for predicted y.

I hope this helps.
