Line Speed Number of Defective Parts Found
20 21
20 19
40 15
30 16
60 14
40 17

Develop the estimated regression equation that relates line speed to the number of defective parts found.

Use the equation developed above to forecast the number of defective parts found for a line speed of 50 feet per minute.
