A point is moving linearly with constant velocity $v$ and the movement is $x=a+vt$.

The below information is given:

Find the initial position $a$ and the velocity using the method of least square.

Could you give me a hint how we use this method here? Couldn't we use the data of the matrix and get a $2\times 2$ linear system?
