Multiple Regression
Formula used for prediction is y hat = b0 + b1(x1) + b2(x2) + bk(xk). For regression coefficients
in multiple regression, involves matrix algebra, so use computer output to interpret data instead
of calculating values (: (: (:

Simple Regression
Prediction about what score should be rather than association between 2 vars.
Regression line summarize linear relationship btwn X & Y, explains how Y changes as observe
changes in X, predict Y from X, so prediction errors made are error

Correlation
Linear association between 2 variables correlation coefficient. rxy or simply r represents corr, is
the standardized covariance measure of covariance between variables wrt standard dev of
each variable, aka use z scores to calculate. See if on
