It is thought that prehistoric Indians did not take their best tools, pottery, and household items when they visited higher elevations for their summer camps. It is hypothesized that archaeological sites tend to lose their cultural identity and specific cultural affiliation as the elevation of the site increases. Let x be the elevation (in thousands of feet) for an archaeological site in the southwestern United States. Let y be the percentage of unidentified artifacts (no specific cultural affiliation) at a given elevation. Suppose that the following data were obtained for a collection of archaeological sites in New Mexico:
x 5.75 6.00 6.75 7.25 7.50
y 61 41 62 81 98
r=0.855
x-bar=6.65
~y68.6
y=-93.145+24-323x
what percentage of the variation in y cannot be explained by the corresponding variation in x and the least-squares line?

1. You wish to find the coefficient of nondetermination, which is the percentage of the variation in y that cannot be explained by the corresponding variation in x.

Formula: 1 - r^2

I'll let you take it from here. Convert the decimal to a percentage for your answer.
