Use the following table to answer the questions. (Give your answers correct to two decimal places.)

x 1 1 3 3 5 5 7 7 9 9
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



(b) Find the ordinates y hat for the points on the line of best fit whose abscissas are x = 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.
1 . .
3 . .
5 . .
7 . .
9 . .

(c) Find the value of e for each of the points above (e = y - y hat).
y e y e
3 . . 3
2 3
6 2
1 5
3 3

  • Math -

    yhat = 3x

  • Math -

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

  • Math -

    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: y-2 =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: y-1 = 2x
    y = 2x +1

  • Math -

    b) yhat = 3x

  • Math -

    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????
