First, calculate the error margin,
$850-$730=$120
Divide the error against actual cost,
$ 120 $ 850 = 0.14118
Multiply by 100% to find the percentage error,
0.14118 × 100 %
Thus, the percentage error is 14.118%

If the coefficients of a simple regression line, B 0 and B 1 , are the same then why are the regression lines of y on x and x on y different given the condition r 2 < 1. I have tried all the manipulation and graphical analysis I can but can't seem to see why this is happening.

Correlation: Concept to FormulaIn digital signal processing, we calculate the correlation between two discrete signals by multiplying corresponding samples of the two signals and then adding the products. Where does this process/formula for correlation come from?
I understand the concept of correlation (similarity) between two signals. But I fail to understand how it translates to the formula that it does.
All the texts I have seen so far start with this formula and explain cross correlation, auto correlation, etc. None of them attempt to explain how the formula was derived in the first place.

A random sample of size n from a bivariate distribution is denoted by ( x r , y r ) , r = 1 , 2 , 3 , . . . , n. Show that if the regression line of y on x passes through the origin of its scatter diagram then
y ¯ r = 1 n x r 2 = x ¯ r = 1 n x r y r
where ( x ¯ , y ¯ ) is the mean point of the sample.

Suppose Z ( t ) = Σ k = 1 n X e j ( 𝜔 0 t + 𝚽 k ) , t R where 𝜔 0 is a constant, n is a fixed positive integer, X 1 , . . . , X n ,   𝚽 1 , . . . , 𝚽 n are mutually independent random variables, and E X k = 0 , D X k = σ k 2 , 𝚽 , U [ 0 , 2 π ] , k = 1 , 2 , . . . , n . Find the mean function and correlation function of { Z ( t ) ,   t R } .
I have tried to solve it.
For mean function,
m Z ( s ) = E { Z s } = E { X s } + i E { Y t }
= E { Σ k = 1 s X e j ( 𝜔 0 t + 𝚽 k ) }
For correlation function,
R Z ( s , u ) = E { Z s , Z u }
= E { Y ( s ) Y ( u ) }
= E { Σ k = 1 s X e j ( 𝜔 0 t + 𝚽 k ) Σ k = 1 u X e j ( 𝜔 0 t + 𝚽 k ) }
= E { Σ k = 1 s Σ k = 1 u X e j ( 𝜔 0 t + 𝚽 k ) X e j ( 𝜔 0 t + 𝚽 k ) }
I am stuck here. How to move from here ahead?

Correlation and causation data
What are some real life examples (data) in which high correlation:
1) implies causation
2) doesn't imply causation.
I know that there is a lot of data out there of weird correlations, like divorce rate and consuption of margarine, but the problem with this data is, that we don't really know if one is caused by the other, because nobody tested it, so we cannot strictly say that they're unrelated.

I am getting f X , Y ( x , y ) = f X ( x ) f Y ( y ) even if the correlation coefficient ρ 0

If the joint density function of X and Y is given by:
f ( x , y ) = { 1 / 2 , for  | x | + | y | 1 0 , otherwise
Show that Y has constant regression with respect to X and/but that X and Y are not independant.

The Porsche Club of America sponsors driver education events that provide high-performance driving instruction on actual racetracks. Because safety is a primary consideration at such events, many owners elect to install roll bars in their cars. Deegan Industries manufactures two types of roll bars for Porsches. Model DRB is bolted to the car using existing holes in the car's frame. Model DRW is a heavier roll bar that must be welded to the car's frame. Model DRB requires 20 pounds of a special high alloy steel, 40 minutes of manufacturing time, and 60 minutes of assembly time. Model DRW requires 25 pounds of the special high alloy steel, 100 minutes of manufacturing time, and 40 minutes of assembly time. Deegan's steel supplier indicated that at most 40,000 pounds of the high-alloy steel will be available next quarter. In addition, Deegan estimates that 2000 hours of manufacturing time and 1600 hours of assembly time will be available next quarter. The pro?t contributions are $200 per unit for model DRB and $280 per unit for model DRW. The linear programming model for this problem is as follows:
Max 200DRB + 280DRW
s.t.
20DRB + 25DRW 40,000 Steel Available
40DRB + 100DRW ? 120,000 Manufacturing minutes
60DRB + 40DRW ? 96,000 Assembly minutes
DRB, DRW ? 0
