As I canīt include graphics in my answer I will lead you to a website where you can get a plot of you data and a complete regression analysis within a few seconds. All you got to to is type the above given data in a table. Please got to the Webstat Main Page ( http://www.webstatsoftware.com/ ) and select "Fire it up" there. You will see a table with rows and columns then. Enter the data as pairs of var1-var2 into the table. Then select "Stat" and you will be offered a Regression, select "simple linear". Select var1 as x-variable and var2 as y-variable. Click the "next" button and mark all three option fields. Enter 9 in the "Predict Y for X" field (this will answer question part c). Then press "calculate" and you will get the following results: " Simple linear regression results: Dependent Variable: var2 Independent Variable: var1 Sample size: 6 Correlation coefficient: 0.7702 Estimate of sigma: 1.3340393 Parameter Estimate Std.Err.

The data will be plotted there as well, by clicking Save/print you can print the data on your printer. I hope this answers your question. till-ga Search strategy: ( ://www.google.de/search?sourceid=navclient&hl=de&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=regression+analysis+online )
