A statistician wishes to examine the relationship between average monthly

rainfall (in mm), x, and number of road accidents, y, in a particular

city. The following calculations have

been done for you:Ã¥x = 276,Ã¥x2 = 6982,Ã¥y = 193,Ã¥y2 = 3421,Ã¥xy = 4842 and n = 12. The equation of the least squares regression

line is given by:
