Case Study: Hours of Sleep vs GPA
Recap: What is linear regression?
In statistics we say that linear regression describes the linear relationship between "x" variables and the corresponding "y" variables.
15 high school students were used in this theoretical study. Their average number of hours slept each night was recorded as well as their current GPA. A linear regression was then conducted, and a graph and table were tabulated.
Linear Equation: y= bx + a
What linear relationship can be established between x and y? Linear regression analysis can tell us!

The "best fitting line" / regression line could then be incorporated into the graph using Excel or the calculated values above.
Recall: Y= bx + a (regression line)
Find values for "b" and "a" using the following equations:
a= y-bar - b*(x-bar)
a= 3.1 - (0.275)*(5)
Therefore the equation for the regression line is:
y = 0.275x + 1.711
