Determine the regression equation for predicting stress level from the amount of coffee per day one consumes.
Predict the stress level for someone who drinks 8 cups of coffee a day.

If you need to show the work by hand, you can develop the regression equation in the following format:
predicted y = a + bx
...where a represents the yintercept and b the slope.
To get to that point, here are some formulas to calculate along the way.
To find a:
a = (Ey/n)  b(Ex/n)
Note: E means to add up or to find the total.
To find b:
b = SSxy/SSxx
To find SSxy:
SSxy = Exy  [(Ex)(Ey)]/n
To find SSxx:
SSxx = Ex^2  [(Ex)(Ex)]/n
Note: x = cups of coffee; y = stress level
Once you have the equation, substitute 8 for x, then solve for predicted y.
I hope this will help get you started.
