If r = 0.6, Estimate x when y = 16 and y when x = 10
Mean of x = 53
Mean of y = 28
Regression coefficient of y on x = – 1.2
Regression coefficient of x on y = – 0.3
a. r = `square`
b. When x = 50,
`y  square = square (50  square)`
∴ y = `square`
c. When y = 25,
`x  square = square (25  square)`
∴ x = `square`
The regression equation of y on x is 2x – 5y + 60 = 0
Mean of x = 18
`2 square  5 bary + 60` = 0
∴ `bary = square`
`sigma_x : sigma_y` = 3 : 2
∴ b_{yx} = `square/square`
∴ b_{yx} = `square/square`
∴ r = `square`
b_{xy} . b_{yx} = ______.
