Liner Regression

The calculations for our sample size n = 10 are described below. The linear regression model is y = a + bx

Σx = 28.9

Σy = 136

Σxy = 435.3

Σx2 = 99.41

Σy2= 1972

The Slope b =  {(10 * 435.3) - (28.9 * 136)}/ {(10 * 99.41) - (28.9)2} = 2.66

And the intercept a =   {136 - (2.66 * 28.9)}/10 = 5.91

Now we insert these values in the linear model describing as

y = 5.91 + 2.66x Or

Delivery time (mins) = 5.91 + 2.66 delivery distance in miles

The slope of the regression line is the estimated number of minutes per mile required for a delivery. The intercept is the estimated time to prepare for the journey and to deliver the goods that is the time required for each journey other than the actual traveling time.
