R Squared

r = -.944

r = -.79

y = -0.8141x + 9.1332y = -0.9402x + 43.721 if x = 15, y = ? y = -0.9402(15) + 43.721 y = 29.6195 if x = 6, y = ? y = -0.8141(6) + 9.1332 y = 4.2486 Which value for Y is a more accurate prediction for the given X value?

To find how well the Line of Best Fit actually fits the data, we can find a number called R-Squared by using the following formula: 1- Sum of squared distances between the actual and predicted Y values Sum of squared distances between the actual Y values and their mean

1- Sum of squared distances between the actual and predicted Y values Sum of squared distances between the actual Y values and their mean To calculate “R Squared”… 1- 91.81 855.60 1- 0.11=.89

XY 340 1035 1130 1532 2219 2226 2324 2822 2818 356 r = -.944 OK. Don’t kill me. Remember this was the data/graph we were finding “R Squared” for? The value we got for R Squared was.89 Here’s a short-cut. To find R Squared… …Square r r 2 = -.944 -.944 r 2 =.89

R Squared To determine how well the regression line fits the data, we find a value called R-Squared (r 2 ) To find r 2, simply square the correlation The closer r 2 is +1, the better the line fits the data r 2 will always be a positive number

r = -.944 r 2 =.89

r = -.79 r 2 =.62
