Hi

- anonymous

do you know what a residual is?

- anonymous

Nope

- anonymous

a residual is like the margin of an error in like an estimate or so

- anonymous

ok

- anonymous

so all we have to do in this question is find the error in the estimates

- anonymous

and add all of them together

- anonymous

Ok

- anonymous

so for the first one we have 75 predicted enrollment and 50 enrollment

- anonymous

we have -25 residual so far

- anonymous

Alright

- anonymous

remember we have to add all of these numbers in the end

- anonymous

for the second one the numbers are the same so we have 0 residual

- anonymous

btw i made a mistake the first one is 20 residual

- anonymous

Ok so the first one is 20 and the seond 0?

- anonymous

the third one we have 85 predicted and 95 actual

- anonymous

yes to your question

- anonymous

Ok

- anonymous

so can you try and calculate this one?

- anonymous

95 act. 85 predicted

- anonymous

add those numbers up?

- anonymous

no

- anonymous

we have to subtract them

- anonymous

to find the residual

- anonymous

Oh ok subract all those numbers you gave me and then it will give me the answer?

- anonymous

we have 10 additonal residual for the third one

- anonymous

and no to your question

- anonymous

Ok

- anonymous

so we have 20,0,and 10 so far

- anonymous

we have to find the SUM of all the residuals

- anonymous

mhm

- anonymous

So adding

- anonymous

what about 100 act. and 90 predicted

- anonymous

yes to your question

- anonymous

we have 10 residual

- anonymous

so 20,0,10 and 10 so far

- anonymous

40

- anonymous

so far yes

- anonymous

Ok

- anonymous

the next one is also 10

- anonymous

so 20,0,10,10,and 10

- anonymous

Wow ok lol its 50 now

- anonymous

the last one's residual is also 10

- anonymous

so the equation we have now is 20+0+10+10+10+10=?

- anonymous

60!

- anonymous

NICE!

- anonymous

tell me if i was right ok?

- anonymous

wait lemme just tag someone and let them proofread this ok?

- anonymous

@peachpi

- anonymous

Ok

- anonymous

So the answer is 60

- anonymous

yes

- anonymous

@paki

- anonymous

Ok

- anonymous

Nope the asnwer was wrong Oh well

- anonymous

what was the answer?!

- anonymous

idk the test doesn't give it to me it just says its wrong
