An electric utility wishes to examine the relationship between temperature and electricity use in its service region during the summer months. The bivariate data below give the maximum temperature (denoted by x, in degrees Fahrenheit) and the electricity use (denoted by ,y in thousands of kilowatt hours) for a random sample of fifteen summer days. The data are shown in the Figure 1 scatter plot. Also given are the products of the temperature values and values for electricity use for each of the fifteen days. (These products, written in the column labelled "x,y" may aid in calculations.) .

What is the value of the slope of the least-squares regression for these data rounded to two decimal points?

Solution Summary

Step by step method for computing regression model under least squares method.

1. The least squaresregression line given above is said to be a line which "best fits" the sample data. The term "best fits" is used because the line has an equation that minimizes the ______, which for these data is______.
2. For the data point (225.3, 308.1), the value of the residual is_____. (Round your answer to at le

I understand how to apply least squaresregression to produce an estimated regression equation when a single variable is involved.
How is that applied for a MULTIPLE regressionanalysis? Is there a simultaneous solution involving all variables at once, or is a separate calculation performed for each variable independently?
