Graphing calculator.

These results are interpreted as a = -0.86, b = 3.24, r
and s
= 2.025. The correlation coefficient is close enough to 1.0 to confirm

Confidence intervals for the slope ( ) and intercept (A):
First, we obtain t
a program to solve for t
Next, we calculate the terms

Finally, for the slope B, the 95% confidence interval is
(-0.86-0.860242, -0.86+0.860242) = (-1.72, -0.00024217)
For the intercept A, the 95% confidence interval is (3.24-2.6514,
3.24+2.6514) = (0.58855,5.8914).
