 where E is the error term...  Explanation: AS IN (Internet example):
A linear regression equation is usually written
Y = a + bX + e
where
Y is the dependent variable
Statistics Glossary
http://www.cas.lancs.ac.uk/glossary_v1.1/car.html
a is the intercept
b is the slope or regression coefficient
X is the independent variable
e is the error term
The equation will specify the average magnitude of the expected change in Y given a change in X.
The regression equation is often represented on a scatterplot by a regression line.

 Grading comment perfect; I also was able to confirm it, by looking for error term rather than term of error which seemed all wrong 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer

Explanation: ...where E is the TERM of the committed error.
...based on the variables, covariables and the TERMS X= a,b,c
In English mathematical equations we also use the word TERM to describe X,Y and other alphabetical variables.
