# Predict the height of a student whose weight is 60 kilograms.

The average height and weight of a group of students turned out to be 5 ft 6 inches and 65 kilograms respectively. The correlation between heights and weights was found to be 0.6. Using the regression equation for predicting weight from height, the estimated weight of a 6 ft tall student was calculated to be 80 kilograms.

please give me full solution of it. I can't solve it –  Argha Jul 16 '12 at 6:08
Think about what the equation of the line of best fit (for weight in terms of height) might be. –  user22805 Jul 16 '12 at 7:14
Try the model $h(w) = h_0 + \alpha w$. Figure out what $h_0$ and $\alpha$ must be. –  copper.hat Jul 16 '12 at 8:23
