Hydrocarbon Emissions

Plants emit gases that trigger the ripening of fruit, attract pollinators, and cue other physiological responses. The hydrocarbons emitted by the potato plant were measured and compared to the plant weight. Weight (x) was measured in grams and hydrocarbon emissions (y) were measured in hundreds of nanograms for 11 plants. Let alpha = 0.05.
X 57 85 57 65 52 67 62 80 77 53 68
Y 8.0 22.0 10.5 22.5 12.0 11.5 7.5 13.0 16.5 21.0 12.0

For the data in the previous question,
a. Find the regression equation
b. Find 1) the predicted amount of hydrocarbon emissions from
each of the potato plants, 2) the residual for each plant rounded to one
decimal place, and 3) give the sum or your residuals.
c. Find the predicted amount of hydrocarbon emissions to three
decimal places from potato plants with the following weights:
1. 59
2. 75
3. 90
