A doctor wanted to determine whether there is a relation between a
male's age and his HDL (so called good) cholesterol. He randomly selected 17 of his patients and determined their cholesterol.

a. Determine the least-squares regression equation from the sample
data.

a) Assume the least-squares regression equation is Y = b X + a, we can use the formula:
<br>Let x=X-mean(X) and y=Y-mean(Y) and mean(X)=45, mean(Y)= 44.94
<br>b = SUM(x*y)/SUM(x^2) = -0.13 and ...
