Example sentences:

Y = m(X) + v (X) etc, donde E es el **término** de error cometido...

De forma que el sesgo y la varianza del estimador se obtengan a partir de las esperanzas, varianzas y covarianzas de los ***términos** X = a, b, c

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.

perfect; I also was able to confirm it, by looking for error term rather than term of error which seemed all wrong

term


Explanation:
...where E is the TERM of the committed error.

...based on the variables, co-variables 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.
