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.
