On New Year’s Day, I (Jeff) started weighing myself every morning in order to have an interesting data set for this section of the book. (The professionals in the field of weight management strongly discourage weighing yourself every day. When you focus on the number and not overall health, you tend to lose sight of your objectives. I was making a noble sacrifice for science, but you should not try this at home.) The whole chart would be too big to put into the book neatly, so I’ve decided to give only a small portion of the data to you. This then becomes a Civics lesson in honesty, as you shall soon see. There are two charts given below. One has my weight for the first eight Thursdays of the year (January 1, 2009 was a Thursday and we’ll count it as Day 1.) and the other has my weight for the first 10 Saturdays of the year.

(a) Find the least squares line for the Thursday data. (Round the slope and the y-intercept to two decimal places.)

y(x) =

Is it a good fit?

Yes

No

(b) Find the least squares line for the Saturday data. (Round the slope to six decimal places and the y

intercept to two decimal places.)

y(x) =

Is it a good fit?

Yes

No

(c) Use Quadratic Regression to find a parabola which models the Saturday data. (Round your answer for the x2 coefficient to three decimal places and your answers for the x coefficient and constant term to two

decimal places.)

y(x) =

Is it a good fit?

Yes

No
