sir , for correcting variable “a” we had to multiply by 1000 , but for b why did we not multiply by 100
sir please explain !!

Y was written in 1,000’s. X was written in 100’s. So a was multiplied by 1,000 and b was multiplied by 1,000/100 = 10.

I just can’t see how b came to be negative for the formula to be changed from y=a + bx to
y = a – bx.

I should have written + and not – Sorry 🙁
It is typed correctly in the answers printed in the free lecture notes.

Noted. Thanks Sir Moffat.

Thank you so much sir! Bt l hv a question though… The formula says y= a+bx bt on the example in the lecture you subtracted, like the formula changed to y=a- bx. Would you mind to explain why?

I was about to post on the last part of the equation but John has answered it, thank you.

What is the Interpolation and extrapolation?
July 18, 2019 at 4:47 pm
Interpolation is forecasting within the range of the observations. Extrapolation is forecasting outside the range of the observations.

You are welcome 🙂

In the 15″56,I suppose it should be y=a+bx,but it’s y=32.8572-6.7857x,is it right?

Sorry – it should be a plus and not a minus!!
I must re-record it (but the printed answer in the lecture notes is correct 🙂 )
