so I need to be able to prove that, given the residual is given by ei=yi-y(hat)i, the mean of the residuals, ie e-bar, is always equal to zero
Follow Math Help Forum on Facebook and Google+
but that's false, if your model is
However it is true if the model does include the constant term, say
In that second case, which using matrices is a lot easier we have... from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regression_analysis
but isnt that just the proof that the sum of the residuals is equals to zero, not that the sum of the mean of the residuals is equal to zero?
what's the diff?
divide by n
