 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.
