_{2}, y

_{2}), . . . , (x

_{n}, y

_{n}).

(a) Find the least squares estimate of Î².

(b) Fit the model Y = Î²x + e to the chloride concentrationroadway area data in Exercise 11-12. Plot the fitted model on a scatter diagram of the data and comment on the appropriateness of the model.

**Exercised 11-12**

An article in the Journal of Environmental Engineering (1989, Vol. 115(3), pp. 608€“619) reported the results of a study on the occurrence of sodium and chloride in surface streams in central Rhode Island. The following data are chloride concentration y (in milligrams per liter) and roadway area in the watershed x (in percentage).
