How would I determine how the weight of a​ gas-powered car,​ x, affects gas​ mileage, y using the below data represent the weights of various domestic cars and their miles per gallon in the city for the most recent model year? How would I find the least-squares regression line treating weight as the explanatory

variable and miles per gallon as the response variable, ^ y =__ x + __ and also interpret the slope y-intercept, if appropriate?

Weight (pounds)   MPG

x                      y
