Compute the appropriate regression equation for the following data:

 x (Dependent Variable) 10 12 13 17 18 y (Independent Variable) 5 6 7 9 13

#### Solution

 X = xi Y = yi xi2 yi2 xiyi 10 5 100 25 50 12 6 144 36 72 13 7 169 49 91 17 9 289 81 153 18 13 324 169 234 Total 70 40 1026 360 600

From the table, we have,

n = 5, Σxi = 70, Σyi = 40, Σxiyi = 600, Σxi2 = 1026, Σyi2 = 360

barx = (sumx_"i")/"n" = 70/5 = 14, bary = (sumy_"i")/"n" = 40/5 = 8

Now, for regression equation of X on Y

bxy = (sumx_"i"y_"i" - "n"bar(x)  bar(y))/(sumy_"i"^2 - "n" bar(y)^(-2))

= (600 - 5 xx 14 xx 8)/(360 - 5(8)^2)

= (600 - 560)/(360 - 320)

= 40/40

= 1

Also, a' = barx - "b"_(xy)  bary = 14 – 1 (8)

= 14 – 8

= 6

∴ The regression equation of X on Y is

X = a' + bxy Y

∴ X = 6 + Y
