## Main Question or Discussion Point

I need help with this question.

Suppose we are making predictions of the dependent variable y for specific values of the independent variable x using a simple linear regression model holding the confidence level constant. Let C.I = the width of the confidence interval for the average value y for a given value of x, and P.I = the width of the prediction interval for a single value y for a given value of x.

I need to know if C.I > P.I., < P.I., = P.I., or = .5 P.I.
