Show the data in a scatter diagram and use the least squares criterion to find the slope (b = ====) and the intercept (a) for the best fitting line. Sketch the least squares line in your scatter diagram. Use the line to estimate the constant amount by which administrator compensation would change for each percentage point increase in hedge fund return.
