Hi there! Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

The line of best fit is: y -1.3805x - 2.4465

The correlation coefficient R^2 is given by 0.94916

Please let me know if you need any clarification. Always glad to help!

The issue is that, in order to determine the line of best fit, you need to know linear algebra, I don't know if you have seen that. The concept of Linear Regression (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linear_regression) requires minimizing a problem in linear algebra, with matrices. Have you seen any of that?

Other than that, the only other way I know how to do is by plotting it on a program like Excel or using a graphing calculator. Here, I used Excel

ok thank you! any chance you know how to do this question?

based on the following data:

35,33,48,41,45,38,30,34,29,25

12,24,37,48,50,42,36,50,34,30

a)between which 2 scores are 2 standard deviations from the mean?

b)which score report represents 3 deviations above the mean?

c)which score is at the 30.9 percentile?

d)between which two scores does 68.2% of the data fall betweenâ€‹
