Lecture 5 Material Covered in This Lecture: Chapter 2, Section 2.3: Least Squares Regression Example from last time: Example(Exercise 2.29): A student wonders if tall women tend to date taller men than do short women. She measures herself, her dormitory roommate, and the women in the adjoining rooms; then she measures the next man each woman date. Here are the data (heights in inches) Woman (X) 6 6 6 4 6 6 6 5 7 0 65 Men (Y) 7 2 6 8 7 0 6 8 7 1 65 (to find this in minitab, follow stat>basic statistics>correlation) Answer: r = 0.565.

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
