. Chapter 17 is devoted to least-squares regression. We will first learn how to fit the “best” straight linethrough a set of uncertain data points. This technique is called linearregression. Besides discussing how to calculate the slope and intercept of this straight line, we also present quantitative...

relationships. The general form of a linear relation between x and y is y a bx. A particular relation is speciﬁed by choosing values of a and b. Thus, one such relationship is y 10 2x; another is y 100 5x. If wechoose some x values and compute y a bx for each value, the points in the plot of the...

Now we fit a straight linethrough the data points. Of course, two points uniquely determine a straight line. Although our twelve points don't fit exactly on any straight line, the TI-86 has a built in feature called linearregression that determines the straight line that best fits the data...

method for fitting a regressionline is the method of least-squares. This method calculates the best-fittingline for the observed data by minimizing the sum of the squares of the vertical deviations from each data point to the line (if a point lies on the fitted line exactly, then its vertical...
