Step 1

Given data
y = a + bx
b = - 0.98
a = 20.878
r2 = 0.678976
r = -0.824
The least square regression equation is given by
y = a + bx
y = 20.878 + (-0.98) x
No of situps a person who watches 5.5 hours of tv is given by
putting x = 5.5 in least square regression equation
y = 20.878 + (-0.98) * 5.5
y = 15.488
