Linear regression

Sample data

The following data is real. The percent of declared ethnic minority students at De Anza College for selected years from 1970 - 1995 was:

The independent variable is "Year," while the independent variable is "Student Ethnic Minority Percent."
Year Student Ethnic Minority Percentage
1970 14.13
1973 12.27
1976 14.08
1979 18.16
1982 27.64
1983 28.72
1986 31.86
1989 33.14
1992 45.37
1995 53.1

Student ethnic minority percentage

A scatterplot of the ethnic minority percentages listed in the above chart, plotted from 1960 to 2000.
By hand, verify the scatterplot above.
The TI-83 has a built-in linear regression feature, which allows the data to be edited.The x-values will be in [L1] ; the y-values in [L2] .

    To enter data and do linear regression:

  1. ON Turns calculator on

    on button

  2. Before accessing this program, be sure to turn off all plots.
    • Access graphing mode.

      2nd button , [STAT PLOT]

    • Turn off all plots.

      four button , enter button

  3. Round to 3 decimal places. To do so:
    • Access the mode menu.

      mode button , [STAT PLOT]

    • Navigate to <Float> and then to the right to <3> .

      down button right button

    • All numbers will be rounded to 3 decimal places until changed.

      enter button

  4. Enter statistics mode and clear lists [L1] and [L2] , as describe above.

    stat button , four button

  5. Enter editing mode to insert values for x and y.

    stat button , enter button

  6. Enter each value. Press enter button to continue.

    To display the correlation coefficient:

  1. Access the catalog.

    2nd button , [CATALOG]

  2. Arrow down and select <DiagnosticOn>

    down button ... , enter button , enter button

  3. r and r 2 will be displayed during regression calculations.
  4. Access linear regression.

    stats button right button

  5. Select the form of y a b x

    eight button , enter button

The display will show:


  • y a b x
  • a 3176.909
  • b 1.617
  • r 2 0.924
  • r 0.961

This means the Line of Best Fit (Least Squares Line) is:

  • y 3176.909 1.617 x
  • Percent 3176.909 1.617 (year #)
The correlation coefficient r 0.961

    To see the scatter plot:

  1. Access graphing mode.

    2nd button , [STAT PLOT]

  2. Select <1:plot 1> To access plotting - first graph.

    enter button

  3. Navigate and select <ON> to turn on Plot 1.

    <ON> enter button

  4. Navigate to the first picture.
  5. Select the scatter plot.

    enter button

  6. Navigate to <Xlist>
  7. If [L1] is not selected, press 2nd button , [L1] to select it.
  8. Confirm that the data values are in [L1] .

    <ON> enter button

  9. Navigate to <Ylist>
  10. Select that the frequencies are in [L2] .

    2nd button , [L2] , enterbutton

  11. Go back to access other graphs.

    2nd button , [STAT PLOT]

  12. Use the arrows to turn off the remaining plots.
  13. Access window button to set the graph parameters.
    • X min 1970
    • X max 2000
    • X scl 10 (spacing of tick marks on x-axis)
    • Y min 0.05
    • Y max 60
    • Y scl 10 (spacing of tick marks on y-axis)
    • X res 1
  14. Be sure to deselect or clear all equations before graphing, using the instructions above.
  15. Press graph button to see the scatter plot.

please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
yes that's correct
