Using the TI 83 to find the Line of Best Fit or Least Square Regression Line Step 1: Enter the data into List 1 (L1) STAT 1 OR ENTER To see the graph of the scatterplot Step 2: Make sure plot 1 is on , showing a scatterplot, and the correct lists L1, L2. 2nd y= If it is go to step 3. If it is not on do the following (Off and showing a histogram) ENTER to get into the settings and then arrow to change what you need to change. Pushing ENTER when the arrow is in the correct position (ON and scatterplot) will turn the plot on and change the graph to a scatter plot. Step 3: ZOOM 9 to see the graph Step 4: 2nd Quit This is not a necessary step, but it will take back to the main screen Step 5: Step 5: STAT VARS arrow to CALC 4 or move down to 4 ENTER arrow to y-vars ENTER ENTER ENTER This screen shows the line of best fit, the slope(b), the y-intercept(a), the coefficient of determination(r2),and the correlation(r). R2 and r are used in statistics.
