### SMAT 130B-01 – CRN: 10227: Find the equation of the regression line for the given data. Then construct a scatter plot of the data and draw the regression line.​ (The pair of variables have a significant​ correlation.) Then use the regression equation to predict the value of y for each of the given​ x-values, if meaningful. The number of hours 6 students spent for a test and their scores on that test are shown below.

### SMAT 130B-01 – CRN: 10227: Two variables have a positive linear correlation. Is the slope of the regression line for the variables positive or​ negative?

Two variables have a positive linear correlation. Is the slope of the regression line for the variables positive or​ negative? Question content area bottom Part 1 A. The slope is negative. As the independent variable increases the dependent variable tends to decrease. B. The slope is positive. As the independent variable increases the dependent variable also […]

### SMAT 130B-01 – CRN: 10227: What is a​ residual? Explain when a residual is​ positive, negative, and zero.

What is a​ residual? Explain when a residual is​ positive, negative, and zero. Question content area bottom Part 1 A. A residual is the difference between the observed​ y-value of a data point and the predicted​ y-value on a regression line for the​ x-coordinate of the data point. A residual is positive when the point is below the​ line, negative when […]
