The retail shop's delivery costs vary in linear manner and can be expressed using the regression equation
y = a + bx, where x = number of units delivered

The total delivery costs for 200 units and 2,000 units are £5,000 and £14,000 respectively

Calculate the values of a and b

    2000-200 = 1800


    200*5.00= 1000
    5000-1000=4000 (A)


    2000*5.00= 10,000
    14,000-10,000=4000 (A)

    B= 5.00
