1. A high correlation does not necessarily imply that a causal relationship
exists between x and y  only that a linear trend may exist;
2. A low correlation does not necessarily imply that x and y are unrelated
 only that x and y are not strongly linearly related.
Prediction.
Let we need to predict the future possible mean value of y for a speciﬁc
value of x, say xp .
The (1 − α)% conﬁdence interval for mean value of y at the point
x = xp is deﬁned as
y ± tα/2 · s ·

7 A. Zhensykbaev Regression Remark. The term "prediction interval" is used when the interval
formed is intended to enclose the value of a random variable. The term
"conﬁdence interval" is reserved for estimation of population parameters.
Example 4. Refer to example 1.
a. Find 95% conﬁdence interval for mean monthly sales when the appliance store spends $600 on advertaising.
b. Using 95% prediction interval predict the monthly sales for next
month, if $600 is spent on advertaising.
Solution. For $600 advertaising x = xp = 6 and
y = 0.7x − 0.1.
Then y = 0.7 · 6 − 0.1 = 4.1.

a. The 95% conﬁdence interval for the mean value of y at the point
x = xp = 6 is (α = 0.05)

= 4.1 ± 2.019.
