Problem 26 BSC

Regression and Predictions. Exercises use the same data sets as Exercises in Section 10-2. In each case, find the regression equation, letting the first variable be the predictor (x) variable. Find the indicated predicted value by following the prediction procedure summarized in Figure.

Figure Gas Prices Using the data from the preceding exercise, find the best predicted price for mid-grade gas for a station that posted \$2.78 as the price of regular gas. Is the result close to the actual price of \$2.84 for mid-grade gas?
