If the oval is tilted, then there is some linear association. If the oval is tilted upwards from left to right, then there is positive association. If the oval is tilted upwards from left to right, then there is positive association. If the oval is tilted downwards from left to right, then there is negative association. If the oval is tilted downwards from left to right, then there is negative association. If the oval is not tilted at all, then there is no association. If the oval is not tilted at all, then there is no association.

Simple Linear Regression To quantify the linear relationship between x and y, we wish to find the equation of the line that “best” fits the data. To quantify the linear relationship between x and y, we wish to find the equation of the line that “best” fits the data. Typically, there will be many lines that all look pretty good.

Residuals The i th residual – The difference between the observed value of y i and the predicted value of y i. The i th residual – The difference between the observed value of y i and the predicted value of y i. Use y i ^ for the predicted y i. Use y i ^ for the predicted y i.
