A student at Joliet Junior College conducted a survey of 20 randomly selected full-time students to determine the relation between the number of hours of video game playing each week, x, and grade-point average, y. She found that a linear relation exists between the two variables. The least-squares regression line that describes this relation is y-hat = -0.0526x + 2.9342.
