Statistics - Regression - Bivariate Data

Bivariate data obtained for the paired variables x and y are shown below, in the table labelled "Sample Data". These data are plotted in the scatter plot (not shown), which also displays the least-squares regression line for the data. The equation for this line is ^y=1.86 + 0.48x. In the "Calculations" table are calculations
