# Is the least-squares regression line resistant?

No, it is not resistant.

It can be pulled toward influential points.

### A point that is always on the regression line?

(mean x, mean y) is always on the regression line.

### Why are there two regression lines?

There are two regression lines if there are two variables - one line for the regression of the first variable on the second and another line for the regression of the second variable on the first. If there are n variables you can have n*(n-1) regression lines. With the least squares method, the first of two line focuses on the vertical distance between the points and the regression line whereas the second focuses on the… Read More

### Is the line of best fit the same as linear regression?

Linear Regression is a method to generate a "Line of Best fit" yes you can use it, but it depends on the data as to accuracy, standard deviation, etc. there are other types of regression like polynomial regression.

### What is regression line?

Regression techniques are used to find the best relationship between two or more variables. Here, best is defined according to some statistical criteria. The regression line is the straight line or curve based on this relationship. The relationship need not be a straight line - it could be a curve. For example, the regression between many common variables in physics will follow the "inverse square law".

### What characteristic makes regression line of best fit?

The equation of the regression line is calculated so as to minimise the sum of the squares of the vertical distances between the observations and the line. The regression line represents the relationship between the variables if (and only if) that relationship is linear. The equation of this line ensures that the overall discrepancy between the actual observations and the predictions from the regression are minimised and, in that respect, the line is the best… Read More

### What is the different between correlation and regression?

correlation we can do to find the strength of the variables. but regression helps to fit the best line

### What is the relationship between correlation coefficient and linear regreassion?

A correlation coefficient is a value between -1 and 1 that shows how close of a good fit the regression line is. For example a regular line has a correlation coefficient of 1. A regression is a best fit and therefore has a correlation coefficient close to one. the closer to one the more accurate the line is to a non regression line.

### What is the line of regression?

line that measures the slope between dependent and independent variables

### What is regression coefficient and correlation coefficient?

The strength of the linear relationship between the two variables in the regression equation is the correlation coefficient, r, and is always a value between -1 and 1, inclusive. The regression coefficient is the slope of the line of the regression equation.

### Explain the concept of correlation and regression line as a forecasting tool?

once an equation for a regression is derived it can be used to predict possible future

### What is Definition of linear regression and correlation in statistics?

Whenever you are given a series of data points, you make a linear regression by estimating a line that comes as close to running through the points as possible. To maximize the accuracy of this line, it is constructed as a Least Square Regression Line (LSRL for short). The regression is the difference between the actual y value of a data point and the y value predicted by your line, and the LSRL minimizes the… Read More

### In software testing regression testing must consist of fixed set of test to create a base line is it true or false?

Regression are classified as - Full / Complete Regression -- Entire application is regressed - Regional regression -- Tests performed around defect fixes or code changes

### If the regression sum of squares is large relative to the error sum of squares is the regression equation useful for making predictions?

If the regression sum of squares is the explained sum of squares. That is, the sum of squares generated by the regression line. Then you would want the regression sum of squares to be as big as possible since, then the regression line would explain the dispersion of the data well. Alternatively, use the R^2 ratio, which is the ratio of the explained sum of squares to the total sum of squares. (which ranges from… Read More

Finding the line of best fit is called linear regression.

### What is the sign of slope of the regression line if the correlation coefficient is -0.15?

The sign is negative.

### How do you plot linear regression line?

Linear regression looks at the relationship between two variables, X and Y. The regression line is the "best" line though some data you that you or someone else has collected. You want to find the best slope and the best y intercept to be able to plot the line that will allow you to predict Y given a value of X. This is usually done by minimizing the sum of the squares. Regression Equation is… Read More

### What is the equation that shows the relationship among certain quantities?

The answer depends on the quantities and the nature of the relationship. It can be a line-of-best-fit (or regression line), or a formula.

### How does a linear regression allow us to better estimate trends costs and other factors in complex situations?

You question is how linear regression improves estimates of trends. Generally trends are used to estimate future costs, but they may also be used to compare one product to another. I think first you must define what linear regression is, and what the alternative forecast methods exists. Linear regression does not necessary lead to improved estimates, but it has advantages over other estimation procesures. Linear regression is a mathematical procedure that calculates a "best fit"… Read More

### Why you call regression line as line of fit?

It is called the line of best fit because it tends to satisfy all the possible points in consideration at the same time with minimal variation.

### What is intercept term?

For a line graph, its equation is: y = mx + c where 'm' is the gradient of the line and 'c' is the intercept - which gives the value of y when x = 0. In linear regression, the line of best fit (y = Î± + Î²x where Î± is the intercept-term) is found so that the distance of each point from this line is a minimum. Sometimes people will go for a… Read More

### Definition of trend in math terms?

Usually it refers to the straight line regression of a variable against time.

### What is the least squares regression line?

Suppose you have two variables X and Y, and a set of paired values for them. You can draw a line in the xy-plane: say y = ax + b. For each point, the residual is defined as the observed value y minus the fitted value: that is, the vertical distance between the observed and expected values. The least squares regression line is the line which minimises the sum of the squares of all the… Read More

### What is a least square regression line?

If you plot data points on a graph the rarely will form a straight line. Least squares is a method of finding a line 'close' to all the data points instead of just guessing and drawing a line that looks good. If you have a line, then there is an algebraic formula to find the distance from each point to that line. Then using statistics, you can make the statistically averaged distance from each data… Read More

Let's say that you fit a simple regression line y = mx + b to a set of (x,y) data points. In a typical research situation the regression line will not touch all of the points; it might not touch any of them. The vertical difference between the y-co-ordinate of one of the data points and the y value of the regression line for the x-co-ordinate of that data point is called a residual. There… Read More

Alpha is not generally used in regression analysis. Alpha in statistics is the significance level. If you use a TI 83/84 calculator, an "a" will be used for constants, but do not confuse a for alpha. Some may, in derivation formulas for regression, use alpha as a variable so that is the only item I can think of where alpha could be used in regression analysis. Added: Though not generally relevant when using regression for… Read More
