Linear Regression
Hi, I am trying to graph this data using Linear Regression. I have no clue what I am doing and I have tried using my graphing calculator but it keeps giving me an error. So can anyone help me. What is the linear regression equation for this data. And only how much money would you make in year 2016.

Insert the data into MS Excel, graph as a scatterplot. After this right click the plot and choose "Add Trendline", in options choose "Display Equation on Chart"

It will give you the equation $y = 1.039x - 2056.4$
