  1. the explanatory variable would be X the square footage of a house which is .0686

    and the response variable would be Y the asking price in thousands of the house which is 83.24 .

    I am confused on how to figure out the rest of the problem.

  2. the slope x is the amount price per square slope increase per sqauare foot.
    the y intercept is a base price for buying a house at all, even with zero sq ft.
    It is safe to use the equation to predict for other sg feet.
