# Sketch a scatter plot for the following data—that is, a graph showing the X, Y data points: X Y 4 13 2 5 5 12 1 6 a. Find the regression equation for predicting Y from X. Draw this line on your graph. Does it look like the best-fitting line?b. Use the regression equation to find the predicted Y value corresponding to each X in the data.

a.

To determine

To sketch: The scatter plot of the given data and find the regression equation for predicting Y from X.

Explanation

Given info:

The given data are shown below:

 X Y 4 13 2 5 5 12 1 6

Calculation:

Software procedure:

Step-by-step procedure to obtain the scatter plot using the SPSS software:

• Go to Variable View> Enter the name of the variable as X and second variable as Y.
• Go to Data View>Enter the values of X.
• Click Graphs>Legacy Dialog>Scatterplot.
• Choose simple scatter icons and drag the appropriate X and Y-axis.
• Choose OK.
• Choose fit line at total from the chart editor window.

Output using the SPSS software is given below:

From SPSS output, the regression equation is, YâŚ˘=2X+3

Mean of the variable X is,

MX=4+2+5+14=124=3

Thus, the mean of the variable XÂ  is 3.

Mean of the variable Y is,

MY=13+5+12+64=364=9

Thus the mean of the variable y is 9.

For calculating SSx and SP the table is shown below:

 S

b.

To determine

To find: The predicted value of Y using regression equation.
