8. This data shows the final exam scores of 10 randomly selected students and the number of hours they studied for an exam. (hours, scores) (3, 65), (5, 80), (2, 60), (8, 88), (2, 66), (4, 78), (4, 85), (5, 90), (6, 80), (3, 71)

Find the equation of the regression line for the given data.

y = 4.4747x + 57.506

y = -4.4747x + 57.506

y = 57.506x + 4.4747

y = 57.506x – 4.4747
