Some statistical methods require that the residuals from a regression line have a normal distribution. Consider the following residuals.

 0.37 -0.70 0.10 -0.34 0.19 0.61 -0.26 -0.98 1.64 -0.18 -0.23 0.54 -0.54 -1.11 0.93 -0.03

(b) Find the regression line of mean score on time step-by-step. First calculate the mean and standard deviation of each variable and their correlation (use a calculator with these functions). Then find the equation of the least-squares line from these. (Round your answers to two decimal places.)
? =  +  x

Draw the line on your scatterplot. What percent of the year-to-year variation in scores is explained by the linear trend? (Round your answer to one decimal place.)
%

Descriptive Statistics: x, y

Variable Mean StDev
x -0.126 0.543
y 0.127 0.872

Correlation: x, y

Pearson correlation of x and y = -0.102
