# Thread: SST Calculation

1. ## SST Calculation

Ok, so I am thoroughly confused atm. Right now I am trying to do three things.

Calculate SS Total, and the explained sum of squared variation for SSR.

Ok so I had the outputs given to me of

Sum x = 30
Sum x squared = 104
Sum of y = 40
Sum of y squared - 178
Sum of x times y = 134

I used that data to solve and get the following
SSxy = 14
SSxx = 14
b1 = 1
ybar = 4
xbar = 3
b0 = 1
yhat = 1 + 1x
Ok so based on this the sqares regression line is 1+x
so y intercept is 1 and slope is 1

I calculated sse to be 9...

When I try and calculate sst which is xbar1-xbar
I get 10(30-3)^2 = 7290

Im pretty sure this number is wrong. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?

2. We need to know n, but I guess it is supposed to be 10.

$\displaystyle SS_{total} = \sum Y_i ^ 2 - n \bar{Y}^2 = 178 - 160 = 18$.

Assuming you calculated SSE correctly, the regression SS is 9.

Ah ok. Thanks, I didn't have that formula. And yes, N was 10.

4. In nice situations (regression being one) the relevant sums of squares all have easy computational forms that are worth knowing so that you can do problems like this quickly. They all look basically the same as this one does.

This is kind of a loaded question, but If i wanted to make an anova table out of this and complete the other variables what would be the easiest way to do so?
