A researcher wanted to investigate the potential relationship between subjects’ weight and height.

After measuring $15\text{ individuals}$, the researcher found heights average $68\text{ inches}$ with a standard deviation of $3.4\text{ inches}$. Weights averaged $204\text{ pounds}$ with a standard deviation of $24.5\text{ pounds}$. The correlation coefficient was $r = 0.76$.

What is the equation of the least squares regression line?

A

$\text{Weight = 5.48(Height)} -168.64$

B

$\text{Weight = 204(Height)} -168.84$

C

$\text{Height = 5.48(Weight)} -168.84$

D

$\text{Weight = 68(Height)} +24.5$

E

$\text{Weight = 45(Height)} -24.5$
