Here is the results using R:
> -0.864*4.5 +37.082
A regression was run to determine if there is a relationship between hours of TV watched per day (x) and number of situps a person can do (y).
The results of the regression were:
y=ax+b a=-0.864 b=37.082 r2=0.850084 r=-0.922
Use this to predict the number of situps a person who watches 4.5 hours of TV can do (to one decimal place.
I plugged in 4.5 into the equation and got 40.9. The answer is wrong. What am I doing wrong?
