The scatter diagram of midterm scores and final scores in a large class is football shaped. For about 80% of the students, the regression estimate of final score based on midterm score is correct to within 15 points. For about 95% of the students, the regression estimate of final score based on midterm score is correct to within how many points?

    It has to be 21

  • statistics - ,

    why 21?

  • statistics - ,

    22.95

  • statistics - ,

    80% is between -1.2815 and 1.2815 in standard units
    90% is between -1.96 and 1.96

    15/r.m.s. error = 1.2815
    score/r.m.s. error = 1.96

    => score = 15*1.96/1.2815

    Now, when rounding 1.2815 to either 1.281 or 1.282 you'll get slightly different result
