## 8.0 BASIC CONCEPT

Linear regression is a study on the linear relationship between two variables. This is done by
fitting a linear equation to the observed data. The linear equation is then used to predict values
for the data. In a simple linear relationship, only two variables are involved:
X is the independent variable
Y is the dependent variable

Example:
A nutritionist studying weight loss programs might wants to find out if reducing intake of
carbohydrate can help a person reduce weight.
o X is the carbohydrate intake
o Y is the weight
An entrepreneur might want to know whether increasing the cost of packaging his new
product will have an effect on the sales volume.
o X is cost
o Y is sales volume

## 8.1 GRAPHICAL METHOD

A scatter plot is essentially a ploy between the pair of (, ) values. The purpose of constructing
the plot is to examine the relationship between the two variables.

    

    

The scatter plots in figure ( ) and ( ) below shows the existence of a positive and a
negative relationship, whilst ( ) shows no relationship between variable  and .

(a) Positive linear relationship

## (c) No relationship between  and 

Example A
In BMX dirt-bike racing, jumping high or getting air depends on many factors; the riders
skill, the angle of the jump, and the weight of the bike. Here are the data about maximum height
for various bike weights.

Type A B C D E F G H I J
Weight 19 19.5 20 20.5 21 22 22.5 23 23.5 24
(pounds)
Height 10.35 10.3 10.25 10.2 10.1 9.85 9.8 9.79 9.7 9.6
(inches)

Construct a scatter diagram for these data. Does the scatter diagram exhibit a linear relationship
between weight and height of the BMX dirt-bike?

Solution:

Yes the scatter diagram exhibits a linear (negative) relationship between weight and height.

Example B
The dosage chart below was prepared by a drug company for doctors who prescribed
Tobyamycin, a drug that combats serious bacterial infections such as those in central system, for
life threatening situations.

Weight 88 99 110 121 132 143 154 165 176 187 198
(pounds)X
Usual Dosage 40 45 50 55 60 65 70 75 80 85 90
(mg)Yu
Maximum Dosage 66 75 83 91 100 108 116 125 133 141 150
(mg)Ym

## i) Construct a scatter diagram for the data (weight, usual dosage)

ii) Construct a scatter diagram for the data (weight, maximum dosage) on the same axes
Does the scatter diagram exhibit a linear relationship between weight and usual dosage, and also
between weight and maximum dosage.

Solution:

Yes the scatter diagram exhibits exhibit a linear (positive) relationship between weight and
usual dosage, and also between weight and maximum dosage

Properties of :
1. 1  1

2. (a) Values of  equal to 1 implies there is a perfect positive linear relationship between  and .
(b) Values of  equal to 1 implies there is a perfect negative linear relationship between  and .

3. (a) Values of  close to 1 implies there is a strong positive linear relationship between  and .
(b) Values of  close to 1 implies there is a strong negative linear relationship between  and .

4. (a) Values of  close to 0.5 implies there is a weak positive linear relationship between  and .
(b) Values of  close to 0.5 implies there is a weak negative linear relationship between  and .

## 5. Values of  equal to 0 implies there is no linear relationship between  and .

To find and interpret  , we need to build a table with five major column heading by , , ,  
and   , and add the last row with a summation of the values.
# \$ #\$ #% \$%

'# = '\$ = '#\$ = %
'# = '\$ =%

## Lets take a look at the example below:

8.3 SIMPLE LINEAR REGRESSION EQUATION
A linear regression equation is a mathematical equation that can be used to predict the
values of one dependent variable from known values of an independent variable. This equation
represents a straight line so it is the form  = *+ + *  where * is the slope and *+ is the
 intercept.
The basic simple linear regression is given by

 = *+ + *  + -
Where
 = independent variable
 = dependent variable
*+ =  intercept of the line
* = slope of the line
- = random error component

This regression line is estimated from the data collected by fitting a straight line to the
data set and getting the equation of the straight line

. = */+ + */ 

## Model assumption about random error:

-~123(0, 4  ) that is
1. The expected value of - is zero, 5(-) = 0
2. The variance of - is constant for all x
3. -~123(0, 4  ) that is the probability distribution of - is normal with mean 0 and
variance 4  .
4. The values of - are independent, that is the value of - associated with one y value has
no effect on the value taken on by - for other y values.

## 8.3.1 LEAST SQUARE METHOD

The least square method is the method most commonly used for estimating the regression
coefficient, */+ and */.

The straight line fitted the data set is the estimated linear regression line
. = */+ + */ 

10 Nurhana.PPD (2_14/15)
For any data point ( ,  ), the deviation or error is given by
6 =  .
6 =  (*/+ + */  )

## 7 6  = 7( */+ */  )

8

Is minimized by finding the partial derivatives and setting them equal to zero. That is
9
= 2 7( */+ */  ) = 0
9:.
9
= 2 7  ( */+ */  ) = 0
9*/

## By rearranging terms, the following normal equations are obtained

;*/+ + */ 7  = 7 

*/+ 7  + */ 7   = 7  

## Where < and  are the means of x and y respectively

Given any value of  , the predicted value of the dependent variable . can be found by
substituting  into fitted simple linear regression.
