    Sketch a scatterplot data

    Let s represent salary and let t represent year. The least squares regression
    line that best fits this sata set is s = 13.199t- 25,812. Sketch this line on
    the graph with the scatterplot and describe what you see.

    Compare this line with the line given in Example 6.2. What value for
    salary do you get from each of the lines if you substitute the value 2001
    for the variable t, and what do those values tell you?
