PAM 2100 Lecture 1 Instructor: Salam Abdus Problem Set #3 Posted: September 23 rd , 2008 Due: Tuesday, September 30 th , 2008, at 1:25 pm #1) Many high school students take either the SAT or the ACT. However, some students take both. Data was collected from 70 students who took both college entrance exams. The mean SAT score was 950 with a standard deviation of 170. The mean ACT score was 23 with a standard deviation of 6.5. The correlation between the two variables equals 0.8. a) Give the equation for the least squares regression line, using ACT scores as the explanatory variable and SAT scores as the response variable. (Round your answer for the slope to four decimal places. Use this rounded number to calculate the intercept. Round your answer for the intercept to four decimal places.) b) What proportion of the variation in the values of the SAT scores is attributable to the changes in ACT scores? #2) In a statistics course, a least-squares regression was computed to predict the final exam score from the score on the midterm exam.

    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.
