$\bar{Y}=\frac{1169}{10}$ = 116.9

Regression equation of Y on X

Y - $\bar{Y}=b_{yx}(X-\bar{X})$

Y – 117 = 2.3479 (X – 65.2)

Y – 117 = 2.3479X – (2.3479)(65.2)

Y = 2.3479X – 153.08308 + 117

Y = 2.3479 – 36.08308

When the height X = 69 inches

Weight, Y = 2.3479(69) – 36.08308

= 162.0051 – 36.08308

= 125.92202

= 125.92 lb
