a = the “y” intercept.
Equation of a straight line.Y = mx + b

Days of algebra
b = the “y” intercept.

Statistics form
Y = estimate of the mean of Y for some X value.

Equation of a straight line.How are the slope and yinterceptdetermined?
Is height a goodestimator of mean weight?
Population: All ST 260 students
Y = Weight in pounds,X = Height in inches.
Measure:
Each value of X defines a subpopulation of “height” values.
The goal is to estimate the true meanweight for each of the infinite number of subpopulations.

Plot the data and draw theline through the data.
Predict Y for a given X.
Interpret the meaning of the regression line.
Regression: Know How To:

r > 0.0
Pattern runs upward from left to right; “positive” trend.
r < 0.0
Pattern runs downward from left to right; “negative” trend.

High correlation does not always imply causation.
Causation:Comment 3:
Changes in X
actually docause changes in Y.
Consistency, responsiveness, mechanism
