Using the Least Squares Formulae

Using the totals from the previous page, shown again on the right, we can calculate the slope of the regression line:

*b*(slope) = 0.766

We can also calculate the y intercept of the regression line:

17=0.766(14) + a

17= a + 10.724

17 - 10.7.24 = a

6.276 = a

Therefore, the least squares regression line is:
