Question

# How can you evaluate the goodness of fit for a line of best fit for a paired data set?

- By comparing the points to each other
- By comparing the correlation coefficient to +1 or -1
- By comparing the line to the y-axis
- By comparing the line to the x-axis

## The correct answer is: By comparing the correlation coefficient to +1 or -1

### We first find the predicted values using the equation of the line of best fit and find the residuals (actual values minus predicted values ).

By plotting the residual plot using ordered pairs (x-value, Residual), we can determine the goodness of the line of best fit

By comparing the correlation coefficient to +1 or -1
