Warm-Up What is the probability that a number selected at random from the set {2, 3, 7, 12, 15, 22, 72, 108} will be divisible by both 2 and 3 ? F. 1/4 F. G. 3/8 G. H. 3/5 H. J. 5/8 J. K. 7/8 K.

6.4 Fitting Linear Models to Data Learning Goal: To be able to find the least-squares line.

3
Least-Squares Line The process of fitting a curve to a set of data is called regression. Although several linear regression models my be used, the least-squares line is most common. You can find the least-squares line by using your calculator and the equation could be used to predict unknown values.

4
Over a number of years the weights of prize-winning pumpkins at the annual Topsfield Fair have tended to increase. Predict the winning pumpkin weight for the year Winning Pumpkin Weights- Topsfield Fair Year Weight (lb)

5
Step 1- Make a scatter plot of the data Let x = the number of years since 1983 Let y = winning pumpkin weight that year Use your calculator to find the linear regression. It should be y = 23.99x

6
Step 2- Use the equation of the least- squares line to predict the unknown value. y = 23.99x is 22 years after = 23.99(22) = The winning pumpkin weight for the year 2005 will be about 965 lb.
