---

Bivariate data obtained for the paired variables and are shown below, in the table labelled "Sample data." These data are plotted in the scatter plot in Figure 1, which also displays the least-squares regression line for the data. The equation for this line is.

In the "Calculations" table are calculations involving the observed values, the mean of these values, and the values predicted from the regression equation.
