Lesson 1.5 - Scatter Plots and Least-Squares Lines

6
“Line of Best Fit” “Linear Regression Line” “Least Squares Line” Three terms that mean the same thing

7
In many real-world problems, you will find data that relate 2 variables such as time and distance or age and height. You can view the relationship between 2 variables with a scatter plot.

8
There is a correlation between 2 variables when there appears to be a line about which the data points cluster. The diagram below shows some possible correlations.

9
Finding the Least-Squares Line A scatter plot can help you see patterns in data involving 2 variables. If you think there maybe a linear correlation between the variables, you can use a calculator to find a linear-regression line, also called a least-squares line, that best fits the data. STAT (L1, L2) STAT / CALC / LINREG

10
Find and graph the least-squares line.

11
Correlation and Prediction The correlation coefficient, denoted by r, indicates how closely the data points cluster around the least-squares line. The correlation coefficient can vary from -1, which is a perfect fit for a negative correlation, to +1, which is a perfect fit for a positive correlation.

Ex. 2 Olympic Freestyle Swimming Event Data

15
Each day last week, the manager of a movie theater recorded how many people attended a movie. He also recorded how many bags of popcorn were sold. 1) Is there is a correlation between these two sets of data? Number of people attending a movie Number of bags of popcorn sold 17576 10043 213101 249133 362197 331185 250148 y =.62x – 23.46 r =.99 2) Use your regression model to predict the attendance at a movie during which 198 bags of popcorn were sold.
