Question

How are the slope and intercept of a simple linear regression line calculated? What do they tell us about the relationship between the two variables?

Please provide an example.

Answer #1

How
are the slope and intercept of a simple lonear regression line
calculator? What do they tell us about the relationship between the
two variables?

How is the slope calculated in a simple linear regression
model?

13. Interpreting the intercept in a simple linear
regression model is: *
(A) reasonable if the sample contains values of x
around the origin.
(B) not reasonable because researchers are interested in the
effect of a change in x on the change in y.
(C) reasonable if the intercept’s p-value is less than
0.05.
(D) not reasonable because it is always meaningless.
14. Which of the following is NOT one of the assumptions
necessary for simple linear regressions?: *
(A)...

When understanding the linear relationship between two continuous
variables, what does the intercept tell us?

The strength of the relationship between two quantitative
variables can be measured by
the y-intercept of the simple linear regression
equation.
the slope of a simple linear regression equation.
both the coefficient of correlation and the coefficient of
determination.
the coefficient of determination.
the coefficient of correlation.

Discussion 1: Searching for Causes
This week examines how
to use correlation and simple linear regression to test the
relationship of two variables. In both of these tests you can use
the data points in a scatterplot to draw a line of best fit; the
closer to the line the points are the stronger the association
between variables. It is important to recognize, however, that even
the strongest correlation cannot prove causation.
For this Discussion,
review this week’s Learning Resources...

The regression line can never be used for prediction. True
False
The slope is the amount Y changes for every increase in X. True
False
"When you calculate a regression equation, you want the line
with the most error. " True False
"Correlation measures the linear relationship between two
variables, while a regression analysis precisely defines this line.
" True False
The predicted value based on a regression equation is a perfect
prediction. True False
What represents the intercept (the...

If
the slope of the fitted regression line is -0.91, then describe the
relationship between two variables: Demand in number of units (y)
and price in dollars (x). Provide one or two sentences and use the
variable names properly

What is the regression line? Give an example of simple
correlation between two variables.

Explain the difference between simple and multiple linear
regression.
A. Simple linear regression is faster
B. The difference is in how many independent variables used in
the regression model
C. There is no difference
D. There is a difference in the linearity
