# Ask a question in statistics

Asked Feb 26, 2010, 05:30 AM —
I have a question in regression analysis
In regression analysis the coefficient of determination (R^2) is good (0.8). That means 80% correlation exists between dependent & independent variables. But, acual Y values & predicted Y values (dependent variable is Y that is to be estimated) many values of predicted Y are not in the range of 80% of that of actual Y values I.e. Many predicted Y don't lie in between limits 0.8*Yactual to 1.2*Yactual.
So, for good results, what we should look for, how many predicted Y's (in percentage)should lie in what limits (like 80% as stated above)?

Hi, I have a question... How can I figure this out? Is there a formula? Anyway, if the mean of X is 15.6 and the mean of Y is 23.8, what would happen to the slope and intercept if 10 points was subtracted from every Y? Without knowing what the Y's were (which I don't), how is this possible?...
