Expected change in y when x is increased by 1 o F = 1 ˆ β = -0.00736 c) Suppose temperature were measured in C rather than in F. What would be the estimated regression line? Answer part (b) for an increase of 1C. [Hint: F= (9/5)C +32; now substitute for the “old x” in terms of the “new x”.] With x now denoting temperature in C , + + = 32 5 9 ˆ ˆ 1 0 x y β β ( 29 x x 0132484 . 175695 . 1 ˆ 5 9 ˆ 32 ˆ 1 1 0 - = + + = β β β , so the new 1 ˆ β is -.0132484 and the new 175695 . 1 ˆ 0 = β . Expected change in y when x is increased by 1 o C = 1 ˆ β = -0.01325 d) If a 200 F surface temperature were within the realm of possibility, would you use the estimated line of part (a) to predict deflection factor for this temperature?

### 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.
