y 3 2 6 1 3 3 3 2 5 3
(a) Find the equation of the line of best fit.
y hat = 2.6,.1x Correct: Your answer is correct. . + Correct: Your answer is correct. . x

Anonymous,
yhat = 3x

Math 
Tracy,
I got the first part the answers were 2.6 and .1x, I can not figure out the rest of it B & C.

Math 
Kuai,
There are some of rule you have to follow for particular abscissa.
(2, 4, 6, 8, 10), the abscissa is the half the ordinate
Rule: x = (1/2)y
y = 2x
(1,2 3,4,5): the abscissa is two less than the ordinate.
Rule: y2 =x
y = x + 2
(1,3,5,7,9), the abscissa is one third of the ordinate.
Rule: x = (1/3)y
y = 3x
(0,1, 2, 3.....,10), abscissa
Rule: y1 = 2x
y = 2x +1 
Math 
Kuai,
b) yhat = 3x

Math 
Tracy,
So on B I got the answers, 0.5, 1.5,
2.5,3.5,4.5
And everything that I have tried on C is coming up wrong????
