Georges asked five of his friends how long they studied for the last math test and what grade they received. He found a linear regression equation for the data to be y = 9.6x + 65.8. What does the 9.6 mean in the context of this equation?
The value 65.8 is the y-intercept which means that we will get y = 65.8 if x is equal to zero. This means that 65.8 is the score that one can get if he does not study at all.
