Step 1

Step-by-step procedure to obtain the regression equation using MINITAB:

• Choose Stat > Regression > Fitted Line plot.
• In Response, enter the column containing the response (Y) variable as Life expectancy.
• In Predictors, enter the columns containing the predictor (X) variables as Year.
• Click OK.

Output using the MINITAB software is given below:

Step 2

From the output, the regression equation is E(t) = –223.0+0.15 t.

(e)

The predicted value for the life expectancy of a child born in 1550 is,

Step 3

Thus, the predicted value for the life expectancy of a child born in 1550 is 9.5.
