c. Calculate the least squares regression line with hours used as the dependent variable and months owned as the independent variable.

Note: Express a and b to 4 decimal places of accuracy.

d. Plot the regression line on the scatter diagram you constructed in part (a).

e. Can it be concluded that the slope of the regression line is negative? Formulate and test the appropriate hypotheses at the 5% significance level. Use the critical value approach.
