Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The residual is the difference between the data point and what the predictor equation predicts. Compare y=59 to y=6.4_0.93(60).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So i get that the answer is 3.2, but would it be positive or negative

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think negative to show that the point is below the predictor line.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It would be negative. The E(error/residual) = Y (actual value)  y (predicted value/estimated value) so E(residual) = 59  [6.4 + .93(60)] = 3.2
