(b) Which model (1 or 2) provides better goodness-of-t to the data? Why? (4 points) Both models t the data equally well. Scaling the data does not change the R 2 which measures the goodness of t. In other words, we can measure our variables in which ever units we prefer and the conclusions drawn from our regression model remain the same. University of California, Davis ARE 106 - Winter 2011 (c) How could you solve for the conversion factor between inches and centimeters? (2 bonus points) You could divide b inches 2 by b cm 2 to get the conversion factor. The conversion factor is the constant c in the algebraic representation of scaling the data presented in class....
