Σx =44.0

Σy  = 4400

Σxy= 25607

Σx2 = 254.96

Required

Find out the regression equations of

i. y on x and thus estimate the cost of a piece of land along with 4.5 hectares

ii. Estimate the expected average if the piece of land costs of £ 900,000

Σy = an + bΣxy

Σxy = a∑x + bΣx2

By substituting of the suitable values in the above equations we have

4400 = 9a + 44b ........ (i)

25607 = 44a + 254.96b ........(ii)

By using multiplying equation .... (i) by 44 and equation ...... (ii) by 9 we have

193600 = 396a + 1936b ........ (iii)

230463 = 396a + 2294.64b ........(iv)

By using subtraction of equation .... (iii) from equation ...... (iv) We have

36863 = 358.64b

102.78 = b

by substituting for b in equation........ (i)

4400 = 9a + 44( 102.78)

4400 - 4522.32 = 9a

 -122.32 = 9a

-13.59 = a

Hence the equation of the regression line of y on x is

Y = 13.59 + 102.78x

When the acreage or hectares is 4.5 then the cost

(y) = -13.59 + (102.78 x 4.5)

= 448.92

= £ 448, 920

Note that

Where the regression equation is described by

y= a + bx

Whereas a is the intercept on the y axis and

b is the slope of the line or else regression coefficient

n is the sample size 

After that,

intercept a = (Σy - bΣx)/n

Slope b =
