Experiments are used to establish causation (a cause and effect relationship between the explanatory
and response variables) and observa
Know how to interpret slope in a least squares regression line
Slope tells us the average "increase" (positive slope) or "decrease" (if slope is negative) in y for each one
unit increase in x. When in

So we can do inference.

Explanatory vs. Response variable in terms of regression
In regression, the response variable is the one we want to predict (the y) and the explanatory variable is
the x variable (i.e., the variable w
