LinReg (ax+b) Hello! I'm going to have a big test i math tomorrow and have a little problem. The problem is that i can't get my LinReg to work!? (2nd -> STAT ->CALC -> LinReg(ax+b)) I get's only ERROR: IVALID DIM I can also se that my Y is missing if you click on 2nd -> Table. I have only X, and can't understand were my Y have gone?

Hi Akon,

you can also fill in your lists in L1 and L2 and then go to LinReg and just press the enter key

If you're still having problems, hold on. I'll post some other checks in an hour or two.

    Be aware that the other tip( (2nd) + (mem) etc. ) will delete all your programs (not your applications). It may work for you, but if you have any programs you need, be sure you have someone else with a calculator you can back up to.

    I usually tell the calculator what lists I want to conduct the linear regression for. Assuming the data you want to use are in lists L1 and L2 and you want to store the equation into Y1, the keystrokes are:
    LinReg [L1],[L2],Y1
    Notice the commas (,) between each term, these are needed. The Y1 variable is not needed, and can be any Y variable. The nice thing about storing your results into a Y variable is you can see the equation later by pressing [Y=]. This will also allow you to see the line on a graph.

    You need to be sure that you have the same number of values in both lists, or you will get a DIM error.

    Hope this helps.

When trying to construct linear regression, i go to stat, calc, then 4:linreg(ax +b) then type in my L1, L2, it shows me y=ax+b, a = and b = but not my r2 and r! how do i get it to show me that?

Press MODE to bring up the mode editor. Press down-arrow until you get to the line beginning with "STATDIAGNOSTICS." Use right-arrow to highlight "ON" then press ENTER to select it. Press 2ND [QUIT] to exit the mode editor.

One (or more) of the variables a, x, and b are in archive memory.

Press 2ND MEM to get into the memory management editor. Press 1 to select ALL. Scroll through the list. If any of those three appear with an asterisk to the left, navigate to that line and press ENTER to unarchive it.

How do u store linreg(ax+b)as y1 on ur graphic calculater

When you press [STAT] and right Arrow to highlight CALC you see two linear regression model [4:LinReg(ax+b)] and [8:LinReg(a +bx)]
If you select [4: ...] the command echoes on main calculator screen as LinReg(ax+b) and a blinking cursor
If you press [ENTER] you will get your equation, a, b, and r^2 if DiagnosticsOn command has been executed before. However you will not be able to see the line of best fit on top of the raw data scatter plot.

To save the equation of best fit in a function variable, ex Y1, you complete the command as follows
LinReg(ax+b) [VARS][=>][Y-VARS][1:Function][1:Y1]
The Y1 variable will appear on main calculator screen, and you have
LinReg(ax+b) Y1
Press [ENTER]
Screen display the equation, its parameter and its correlation coefficients (if so configured).
Press [GRAPH] to draw the line of best fit on top of the scatter plot.

Here are two screen captures to show you the equation and the line of best fit.

As you can see from the value of r^2, and the graph, a linear regression does not seem good.

Steps from manual on how to do stemp plot box

To make a plot, first you will need to define a list. To do this, press "{", then enter the values of your list, separating each value with a comma, and ending the list with "}" then store (STO>) the list into a list variable ("2nd" + "1", "2", etc.). For a box plot, you will need only one list, and for a scatter plot, you will need two. One for the independent variable, and one for the response variable; that is, one for the X and Y axis, respectively. To make your plot, open the plot menu ("2nd" + "Y=") and select a plot. From there, you may select the type of plot and which lists to use as values.

To find the residuals for the line of best fit, from the home screen, press "STAT", then move one right to "CALC", then select option 4, "LinReg(ax+b)". Once this command is on your home screen, follow it with your X and Y axis lists, separated by a comma, eg: "LinReg(ax+b) L1, L2". Press enter. In a moment, you will be provided with 'a' and 'b' values. Plug those residuals into your "Y=" menu in the form "ax+b", replacing 'a' and 'b' with the residuals, and the line of best fit will be drawn across your graph.

How do I use stat plot to graph a set of points?

1.Press [MODE], scroll to set Function graphing mode.
2.Press [STAT] [5:SetUpEditor], command is pasted in home screen. Press [ENTER]. Screen displays Done. This clears old values in lists

3. Press [STAT][1:Edit] to enter data.
Press [ENTER] after each number. Cursor moves to next row. After finishing the data of Listt L1, use arrow right and UP to the head of list L2. Enter the values in list L2. Press Enter after last element.

4. Press [Y=] to display Y= editor. Clear function Y1 and all functions or remove highlight from the = in Y2, Y3, etc.
5.Press [2nd][STATPLOT]1 to select 1:Plot1

The blinking cursor on ON means graph will be drawn. Type chosen is Scatter plot. Mark chosen is a dot.

Press [ZOOM][9:ZoomStat]
If you think that the curve look like a straight line you can try to do a linear regression.
Press [STAT] Arrow right to highlight [CALC]
Select [4: LinReg(ax+b)]


LinReg(ax+b) echoes on run screen. Press [2nd] L1 Press comma, Press [2nd] L2 press comma Press [VARS] Arrow right to select [Y:VARs][1:Function] [ENTER][1:Y1]

That is the equation for the linear regression. As you see eqaution has been saved in Y1. Press [GRAPH] to get the data and the regression curve drawn on same graph.

Hope it helps.
