1.The following table presents the monthly consumption (C) and income (I) of 5 families, in Jordanian Dinars:

(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?

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

You will find the formulas at

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