Questions for PB 9.5

(c) Find the regression coefficients a and b.

The general form of simple linear regression is Y= a + bX
Where Y is the dependent variable and X is the independent variable, a and be are known as the regression coefficients .They are estimated by the method of least squares. The estimates of a and b are given by

The parameter b measures the impact of unit change in X on the dependent variable Y. It is the slope of the regression line. The parameter a is the value of Y when X=0. It is known as the Intercept term.
The regression equation can be used to predict the value of Y for a given X. The predicted value of Y is given by
Given that X̅ = 514.9, Y̅ = 29.1, [x2] = 251260.4, [y2] = 1028.7, [xy] = 12636.5
The estimated value of slope = 0.0503
Estimated intercept = 3.2

The estimated regression equation is given by,

Y = 3.2 + 0.0503 * X

(d) Place the regression line on the scatter diagram.

(e) Give S^2(xy) and S(y,x)
