Step 1

The provided information are:

The equation of the regression line is,  weight = -5.69+ 0.1656 length

Length = 48 cm

Observed Weight = 33 kg

The residual value can be calculated using the formula:

Residual = Observed value – Predicted value

Step 2

The predicted weight, for length = 48 can be calculated as:

Step 3

Thus, the resid...
