2. Use the regression equation from the previous problem (with constants rounded to three decimal places) to estimate the percentage of households in the United States that had a dog for a pet in 1989 and in 1999. Round the answers to one decimal place. Do not include a percent sign. For 1989 I got 37.7 as my answer For 1999 I got 29.7 as my answer I’m not sure if my answers are correct and I know if the equation is not right then the other answers will be wrong.

yeah check the years again. Should be y = -0.8022x + 42.215

Ok I see I was probably thinking at the time to put the year for -0.8022 would be -0.802 to be three decimal places. Then do I just plug in 1989 and 1999 into that formula?

  • anonymous
your answers for B are right

  • KJ4UTS
But for 1989 and 1999 I used the y=-.802x+1632.889 formula?
anonymous
  • anonymous
when you plugged in 1989 and 1999 into the "wrong" formula it worked because that formula used years. To use the "right" formula you'd have to change them to 6 and 16 respectively. It will give you the same result

  • KJ4UTS
Oh so I will still get 37.7 for 1989 and 29.7 for 1999?

@peachpi one more question, I plugged in 6 into -0.802(6) + 42.215 and got 37.4 and -0.802(16) + 42.215 and got 29.38 or 29.4 which I think may be the answers because I got 37.7 and 29.7 wrong. Also where does the 6 and 16 come from?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah it is 37.4 for 1989 and 29.4 for 1999, I had my rounding on to the whole using years since 1983, so 1989 - 1983 = 6 1999 - 1999 = 16

Would that also be for the formula to y=-0.802x + 42.213 instead of .215?
anonymous
  • anonymous
no I got .215
