The decline of salmon fisheries along the Columbia River in Oregon has caused great concern among commercial and recreational fishermen. The paper ‘Feeding of Predaceous Fishes on Out-Migrating Juvenile Salmonids in John Day Reservoir, Columbia River’ (Trans. Amer. Fisheries Soc. (1991: 405-420)) gave the accompanying data on y = maximum size of salmonids consumed by a northern squaw fish (the most abundant salmonid predator) and x = squawfish length, both in mm. Use the following statistics to give the equation of the least squares regression line.
x= 525.180, y= 372.258, sx= 13.431, sy= 12.100, r= 0.9768
