1. I would like to a Use the regression equation: Y'= a + bX Please present the calculations and results and ANOVA
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

The correlation is given by the formula

The square of correlation between X and Y is known as the coefficient of determination (R2) . R2 gives the percentage of variation that can be predicated using the regression equation.
