statistics - modelling and problem solving

Not sure how to about this. Have caluated the 5 figure statistics but still not getting me anywhere.

A sample of 10 students was used to investigate the realationship between final exam mark and assignment mark. The results are shown below.

Assignment mark | final mark |

80 | 83 |

77 | 83 |

71 | 79 |

78 | 75 |

65 | 68 |

80 | 84 |

68 | 71 |

64 | 69 |

50 | 66 |

66 | 58 |

predict the final exam mark for a student who scored 50 on an assignment.

Hi elmidge! :)

Can you do a linear regression with this data?
