We often use a regression line to predict the value of y for a given value of x. Regression, unlike correlation, requires we have an explanatory variable and a response variable. LSRL – Is the abbreviation for least squares regression line. LSRL is a mathematical model.

Least squares Regression Line Least squares Regression Line The least squares regression line of y on x is the line that makes the sum of the squares of the vertical distances of the data points from the line as small as possible. Equation of the least squares Equation of the least squares regression line regression line We have data on an explanatory variable x and a response variable y for n individuals. Form the data, calculate the means x and y and the standard deviations s...
