Find the equation of the regression line for the given data. Then construct a scatter plot of the data and draw the regression line. (Each pair of variables has a significant correlation.) Then use the regression equation to predict the value of y for each of the given xvalues, if meaningful. The caloric content and the sodium content (in milligrams) for 6 beef hot dogs are shown in the table below.

(Round to three decimal places as needed.)
a)
predicted val=80.245+170*2.281=468.0 
b)
predicted val=80.245+100*2.281=  308.3 
c)
predicted val=80.245+140*2.281=399.6 
d)
not meaningful, since 210 falls outside the range of x value
