Four arbitrary points (x_{1}, y_{1}), (x_{2,} y_{2}), (x_{3}, y_{3}),(x_{4}, y_{4}) are given in the x, y-plane. Using the method of least squares, if regressing y upon x gives the fitted line y = ax + b; and regressing y upon x gives the fitted line y + ax + b; and regressing x upon y gives the fitted line
x = cy + d, then
A. | Two fitted lines must coincide |
B. | Two fitted lines need not coincide |
