Linear regression

Sample data

The following data is real. The percent of declared ethnic minority students at De Anza College for selected years from 1970–1995 was:

The independent variable is "Year," while the independent variable is "Student Ethnic Minority Percent."
Year Student Ethnic Minority Percentage
1970 14.13
1973 12.27
1976 14.08
1979 18.16
1982 27.64
1983 28.72
1986 31.86
1989 33.14
1992 45.37
1995 53.1

Student ethnic minority percentage

This is a scatterplot for the data provided. Year is plotted on the horizontal axis and percent is plotted on the vertical axis. The points show a strong, curved, upward trend.
By hand, verify the scatterplot above.


The TI-83 has a built-in linear regression feature, which allows the data to be edited.The x -values will be in [L1] ; the y -values in [L2] .

To enter data and do linear regression:

  1. ON Turns calculator on.
    on key

  2. Before accessing this program, be sure to turn off all plots.
    • Access graphing mode.
      2nd key , [STAT PLOT]

    • Turn off all plots.
      number 4 key , enter key

  3. Round to three decimal places. To do so:
    • Access the mode menu.
      mode key , [STAT PLOT]

    • Navigate to <Float> and then to the right to <3> .
      arrow down key arrow right key

    • All numbers will be rounded to three decimal places until changed.
      enter key

  4. Enter statistics mode and clear lists [L1] and [L2] , as describe previously.
    stat key , number 4 key

  5. Enter editing mode to insert values for x and y .
    stat key , enter key

  6. Enter each value. Press enter key to continue.

To display the correlation coefficient:

  1. Access the catalog.
    2nd key , [CATALOG]

  2. Arrow down and select <DiagnosticOn>
    arrow down key ... , enter key , enter key

  3. r and r 2 will be displayed during regression calculations.
  4. Access linear regression.
    stat key arrow right key

  5. Select the form of y = a + bx .
    number 8 key , enter key

The display will show:


  • y = a + bx
  • a = –3176.909
  • b = 1.617
  • r = 2 0.924
  • r = 0.961

This means the Line of Best Fit (Least Squares Line) is:

  • y = –3176.909 + 1.617 x
  • Percent = –3176.909 + 1.617 (year #)
The correlation coefficient r = 0.961

  9. Navigate to <Ylist> .
  10. Select that the frequencies are in [L2] .
    2nd key , [L2] , enter key

  11. Go back to access other graphs.

  12. Use the arrows to turn off the remaining plots.
  13. Access window mode to set the graph parameters.
    window key
    • X min = 1970
    • X max = 2000
    • X s c l = 10 (spacing of tick marks on x -axis)
    • Y min = 0.05
    • Y max = 60
    • Y s c l = 10 (spacing of tick marks on y -axis)
    • X r e s = 1
  14. Be sure to deselect or clear all equations before graphing, using the instructions above.
  15. Press the graph button to see the scatter plot. graph key

Questions & Answers

what is statistics
Bhavani Reply
statistics is the beach of mathematics which deals with collection ,organisation, presentation, analysis and interpretation of numerical data
oh but interpretation of data, like what and how? 🤔
interpretation: Think in a way that you have given a company year turnover and you have a record of 100years and data set is like (Year,Turnover). Now with that data you can interpret many thing how was the company growth, when were the losses and other things
interpretation: it is a process in which we make a decision about a population on the basis of sample data . example: if we want to interpret the average income of employees for upcoming year so we have to interpret the income of employees on the basis of previous year's income of those employees

explain statistics whether it is a science or arts or both
ratnapriya Reply
I would say art is a creation. A chef is an artist. They create new dishes just like the painters. I believe one who creates something new, is an artist. So, Statistics is also an art, if you know it, you can create some new formula, theory, law, etcetera. It is also Science. So yes, it is both.
how do you use the normal distribution table when testing the hypothesis
I am sorry Davia, I cannot help you with that.
percentages of all the possible outcomes are measured. This is so simple and bases on the questionnaire or interview schedule. It's just measuring the probability chances of high %age of the either part of the hypothesis ... dependent ..independent. data is classified on the basis of respondents

surpose a data set of 2,3,5,6,1,4 are given find median
lucy Reply
fastest finger please
Mean (average) 4... Median (middle term) 3.5.. Mode (frequency) every element in a set has 1 frequrncy
i arrange the data set in ascending order. that is, 1,2,3,4,5,6. then find the data set that falls in the middle. in this case, 3 & 4 fall in the middle. you then sum and obtain the average. that is, (3+4)/2=3.5. therefore, 3.5 is the median.
both of you are correct.

solve the question please
can some please help solve so that we learn some
It is a square chi
But can't be a binomial because, the x numbers are 0 to 6, instead those would be "0" or "1" in a straight way
You can do a chi-square test, but the assumption has to be a normal distribution, and the last f's number need to be "64"
sorry the last f's numbers : "6 and 4" which are the observed values for 5 and 6 (expected values)
can't understand basic of statistics ..
Sorry I see my mistake, we have to calculate the expected values
So we need this equation: P= (X=x)=(n to x) p^x(1-p)^n-x
why it is not possible brother
were n= 2 ( binomial) x= number of makes (0 to 6) and p= probability, could be 0.8.
so after we calculate the expected values for each observed value (f) we do the chi-square. x^2=summatory(observed-expected)^2 / expected and compare with x^2 in table with 0.8
tomorrow I'll post the answer, I'm so tired today, sorry for my mistake in the first messages.
It is possible, sorry for my mistake
