Question
Is there a relationship between the weight and price of a mountain​ bike? The following data set gives the weights and prices for ten mountain bikes. Let the explanatory variable x be the weight in pounds and the response variable y be the​ bike's price.

a.  How you explain the slope?
y = 1912.08 + -41.81x

Step 1

In a linear regression model y^=b0+b1x where y^ be the predicted values of response variable and x be the predictor variable, the b1 be the slope and b0 be the intercept of the line.

Slope gives the rapidly change of y with respect to x...
