The scatterplot shows a set of data for which a linear regression model appears appropriate.
The data used to produce this scatterplot is given in the table shown.
Calculate the equation of the least squares regression line of on , rounding the regression coefficients to the nearest thousandth.
Using the information in the table, find the regression line . Round and to 3 decimal places.
