The equation for a straight line (deterministic model) is y = 0 + 1x If the line passes through the
y = β0 + β1x
If the line passes through the point (-2, 4), then x = -2, y = 4 must satisfy the equation; that is,
4 = β0 + β1(-2)
Similarly, if the line passes through the point (4, 6), then x = 4, y = 6 must satisfy the equation; that is,
6 = β0 + β1(4)
Use these two equations to solve for β0 and β1; then find the equation of the line that passes through the points (-2, 4) and (4, 6).
