## KiwiBaby 2 years ago Can anyone please help me? I'd greatly appreciate it. I'll attach my link. I don't need you to answer it for me. Just tell me how to do it on my calculator. Working it out by hand is taking much too long.

no idea how to do a regression line, but since you are going to use a calculator anyway, i would do this http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=regression+line+%281%2C+log%2863%29%29%2C+%282%2Clog%28114%29%29%2C%283%2Clog%28232%29%29%2C%284%2Clog%28416%29%29%2C%285%2Clog%28707%29%29%2C%286%2Clog%281285%29%29

@mahmit2012 is going to show how to do the calculation, but i am going to bet you are supposed to use some program in your calculator, that i wouldn't have any idea how to use

This method is called minimum least square method. Means sum of the square of distance between line and points should be minimum.

Wow, so I would have to work all of that out on paper to solve problems like this every time? No simple calculator input method?
