    Regression equation

    Hi I was wondering if anybody could help me with how do I work out " Find the regression equation. State it in terms of the costs and the output." I dont want anybody to work it out for me thats why I have posted up the x & y values, I am just looking for help on the equation for working it out (I just want to learn it instead of someone tell me the answer and I just steal it as that is wrong!). Also I am willing to +rep anybody for help.

    I hope somebody can help :-) thanks, Swift!
