Question

Kiley gathered the data in the table. She found the approximate line of best fit to be y = 1.6x – 4. A 2-column table with 5 rows. The first column is labeled x with entries 0, 2, 3, 5, 6. The second column is labeled y with entries negative 3, negative 1, negative 1, 5, 6. What is the residual value when x = 3? –1.8 –0.2 0.2 1.8

–1.8

Step-by-step explanation:

Given the following table:

x         y

0       -3

2       -1

3       -1

5        5

6        6

We are also given y = 1.6x – 4

Therefore, when x = 3, we have

Predicted y = 1.6(3) – 4 = 0.8

Since the observed y = – 1 when x = 3 on the table, the residual value can be estimated as follows:

Residual value = Observed value of y – Predicted value of y = -1 – 0.8 = – 1.8.

Therefore, the residual value when x = 3 is –1.8.

The residual value is -1.8 when x = 3

Step-by-step explanation:

We are given the following table

x     |    y

0    |   -3

2    |    -1

3    |    -1

5    |    5

6    |    6

Residual value:

A residual value basically shows the position of a data point with respect to the line of best fit.

The residual value is calculated as,

Residual value = Observed value – Predicted value

Where observed values are already given in the question and the predicted values are calculated by using the equation of  line of best fit. When we substitute x = 3 in the above equation then we would get the predicted value. So the predicted value is 0.8

From the given table, the observed value corresponding to x = 3 is -1

So the residual value is,

Residual value = Observed value – Predicted value

Residual value = -1 – 0.8

Residual value = -1.8

Therefore, the residual value is -1.8 when x = 3

Note: A residual value closer to 0 is desired which means that the regression line best fits the data.
