- To calculate the correla on factor (r), go to Excel, Formulas, Sta s cs, and select the CORREL func on.
- To calculate the Regression Equa on and Coe cient of Determina on: a. Select the x,y data

b. Insert a sca er chart from that data

c. Click the chart, go to Chart Design

d. Go to Quick Layout

e. Select Layout 9

f. Then you get the Regression Equa on, and r square.

1) Exercise 23, page 159.
