Data are coded using y=Log y and X=Log x to give a linear relationship. The equation of the regression line for the coded data is Y=1.2 + 0.4X

a) State whether the relationship between y and x is in the form ax^n or y=kb^x.

Sub in Y = log(y) and X = log(x) and reareange for y. What form do you get??

I still don't understand. I rearrange to get y=10^1.2 . 10^0.4logx

Yeah, now notice that What's the last equality?

x=10^0.4? I'm really confused.

Why does that first line give x^0.4?

Because Log and exponential are inverse operations of each other. They cancel out.

Could you just use the power rule i.e. logx.10 = log10x = x? Or is that wrong?

Well by the power rule we have But to show that we just denote , take logs to get then this is only possible if , hence we have that .
