Question

A regression was run to determine if there is a relationship
between the happiness index (y) and life expectancy in years of a
given country (x).

The results of the regression were:

y=a+bx a=0.13 b=0.198 r^{2}=0.436921 r=0.661

(a) Write the equation of the Least Squares Regression line of the
form

y= + x

(b) If a country increases its life expectancy, the happiness index
will

- decrease
- increase

(c) If the life expectancy is increased by 2.5 years in a certain
country, how much will the happiness index change? Round to two
decimal places.

(d) Use the regression line to predict the happiness index of a
country with a life expectancy of 74 years. Round to two decimal
places.

Answer #1

A regression was run to determine if there is a relationship
between the happiness index (y) and life expectancy in years of a
given country (x).
The results of the regression were:
y=a+bx
a=-1.921
b=0.058
r2=0.753424
r=0.868
(a) Write the equation of the Least Squares Regression line of the
form
y= + x
(b) If a country increases its life expectancy, the happiness index
will
increase
decrease
(c) If the life expectancy is increased by 3 years in a certain...

A regression was run to determine if there is a relationship
between the happiness index (y) and life expectancy in years of a
given country (x).
The results of the regression were:
y=a+bx
a=0.331
b=0.11
r2=0.405769
r=0.637
(a) Write the equation of the Least Squares Regression line of the
form
y= + x
(b) If a country increases its life expectancy, the happiness index

A regression was run to determine if there is a relationship
between hours of TV watched per day (x) and number of situps a
person can do (y).
The results of the regression were:
y=ax+b
a=-1.276
b=24.302
r2=0.779689
r=-0.883
Use this to predict the number of situps a person who watches 3
hours of TV can do (to one decimal place)

Fit a regression line to the data shown in the chart, and find
the coefficient of correlation for the line.

Let x be the age in years of a licensed automobile
driver. Let y be the percentage of all fatal accidents
(for a given age) due to speeding. For example, the first data pair
indicates that 34% of all fatal accidents of 17-year-olds are due
to speeding.
Given: Σx = 329, Σy = 114,
Σx2 = 18,263,
Σy2 = 2582, Σxy =
3988, and r ≈ −0.961.
(c) Find x, and y. Then find the equation of
the least-squares line...

Let x be the age of a licensed driver in years. Let
y be the percentage of all fatal accidents (for a given
age) due to failure to yield the right of way. For example, the
first data pair states that 5% of all fatal accidents of
37-year-olds are due to failure to yield the right of way.
