Method of Least Squares


I've attached the question and my worked solution.

I am confident I have the correct least squares straight line of best fit to the data to 2 d.p., but I'm unsure what is being asked in the next part.

Am I to sub the xi values into the least squares straight line of best fit to acquire yi estimates?

And if so, I know there will be variation. How would you explain the accuracy of such variation?
