    The following data has been collected for two variables, X and Y.

    X Y
    5 30
    10 41
    15 53
    20 62
    25 67

    A simple linear regression model has been constructed using the data in the table and is being used to predict values for the variably Y

    Of 3, 7, 18 and 35, how do I determine which for variable X would lead to an interpolated or extrapolated value for variable Y?

    Please see the attached Word document

    Interpolated values for the variable Y occur when the value of the X variable is within the range of the X values used to create the prediction model. In this case ...

    Solution Summary

    This solution explains the meaning of interpolation and extrapolation when using a linear regression model for predicting Y (the response variable) at a given value of X (the explanatory variable).
