mazen1967 y bar
davidt876 @mazen: y hat you mean?

Also can't the square root of a number be both negative and positive re: answer III?
brave1986 its not the square root but the correlation coefficient raised to the power 2
davidt87 dude what? this is about SEE not the coefficient of determination.

SEE = {E[(Yi - a - bXi)^2/(n-2)]}^(1/2)

sq. roots can be negative or positive no?
CFAJ the SEE is a measure of variability away from the estimated values so it would be always be a positive value cos you can't be like negative one foot away from a point if you know what i mean? you are just 1 foot away from that place
