# Finding The Regression Equation Using Exam Scores

In an introductory stats class, x = midterm exam score and y = final exam score.

The mean midterm score is 75 with a standard deviation of 12.

The mean final exam score is 70 with a standard deviation of 10.

The correlation between the exam scores is 0.68.
