Height (ft) Interval after (min)
96 68
111 80
76 66
91 72
66 58
108 79
116 84
91 79
The data show the time intervals after an eruption (to the next eruption) of a certain geyser. Find the regression equation, letting the first variable be the independent (x) variable. Find the best predicted tie of the interval after an eruption given that the current eruption has a height of 84 feet. Use a significant level of 0.05.
A. What is the regression equation? Ŷ = __ + ___x
B. What is the best predicted value? Ŷ ͌ __ minutes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Have you previously used the STAT key, which brings up a menu, one of the items on which says EDIT?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If you'd press STAT and then EDIT, your calc will display a couple of columns. would you try that, please? are there numbers in the columns, or are they empty?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there are numbers under L2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If you know how to clear out the numbers in column L2, please do it. Otherwise we may be able to find the regression line without clearing L2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now press STAT again. You should see a menu; the middle item at the very top should say MATH or CALC. Does it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1tHEN press the character " 4 ". Your calculator will exevcute option #4, whivch is "linear regressin Line" or something like that.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh yes it has...i had to hit enter again...it says: y=as+b a= .4601084431 b= 29.82726569

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1What we're hoping for is a screen that gives you... cool. Now write this equation: y=0.461x + 29.827. That is your regression equation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yay! That was it, now its asking me the next question

mathmale

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1This problem asks for the regression equation in slightly different format. It asks that you present b first, and then a. So, to asnwer this quaetion, type in 29.827 for the first blank and 0.461 in the 2nd blank. How

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Thisis very important: You're going to use the regression equation to PREDICT what the value of y (actually, of "y hat") is when x = 84, was it? Go back to the original question and ascertain the x value.

mathmale

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1On paper, write the regression equation, subbing 84 for x. Calculate y hat.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You're done! My regret is that we don't have time to review this whole problem so that every quantity and concept is clear to you. Hope you'll review our conversation and take notes on it so that you'll be able to do problems like this on your own.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1As much as I'd like to continue, it's past my bedtime! Don't know when I'll be available tomorrow, but I do expect to be on then and now. I'm so glad you've gotten this one problem behind you and are feeling better. You're most welcome!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but one more thing: It ask me to round one decimal place so that would be 69, correct?

mathmale

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No, that'd be 68.6. That's to 1 decimal place accuracy.
