Determination of the Regression Equation

The determination of the regression equation such given above is generally done by using a technique termed as "the method of least squares'.

The given sets of equations generally known as common equation are utilized to determine the equation of the above regression line when described a set of data.

Σy = an + bΣx  

Σxy = aΣx + bΣx2

Whereas Σy = Sum of y values

Σxy = sum of the product of x and y

Σx = sum of x values

Σx2= sum of the squares of the x values

a = the intercept on the y axis

b = Slope gradient line of y on x

NB: The above regression line is generally used in one way only that is used to estimate the y values when the x values are described.

Regression line of x on y that is x = a + by

- The fact that regression lines can only be utilized in one way leads to what is termed as a regression paradox

- It means that the regression lines are not ordinary mathematical line graphs such may be utilized to estimate the x and y simultaneously

- Hence one has to be careful when using regression lines as it becomes essential to develop an equation for x and y before doing the estimation.
