Question

The regression equation of Y on X is y = 2/9 xand the regression equation of X on Y is x=y/2+7/6

Find : (i) Correlation coefficient between X and Y.

(ii) σ_y^2 if σ _x^2=4

Solution

The repression eqn. of y on x is y =2/9x

Comparing with y − barY = b_yx (x − barx)

Here                b_yx=2/9

Now the regression eqn. of x on y is x =y/2+7/6

Comparing with x-barx=bxy=1/2

(a) we have, correlation coefficient between x and y is

r=sqrt(b_(yx) b_(xy))

=sqrt2/9xx1/2=sqrt1/9+-1/3

∴ r=1/3 (∵b_(yx) and b_(xy) "are positive")

(b) σ_x^2=4⇒ σ_x=2

We have b_yx= r.σ_y/σ_x

∴ 2/9=1/3 σ_y/2

⇒ σ_y=12/9

⇒ σ_y=4/3
