Question

What is one instance where you think linear regression would be
useful to you in your workplace or chosen major? Please describe
including why and how it would be used

Answer #1

Here, we have to give an instance where we think that linear regression would be useful to us in our workplace or chosen major. We consider the following situation-

Let a company ABC wants to launch a new beauty product and wants to analyze it's sales among common men. Here we consider two variables-

x : amount spent on promotion or advertisement of the new beauty product.

y : sales obtained from the beauty product.

Here, x is the dependent variable and y is the independent variable.

So we can form a linear regression equation as - y = a + bx + e

where, a is the intercept

b is the slope and,

e is error in the model.

According to the amount spent on promotion or advertisement of the new beauty product we can analyze how much sales will be obtained.

Probability: Think of an instance in your life in the past week
where you used probability to make a risky decision. How did you
eventually come to make that decision, and what role did the chance
of one particular thing happening have on making that decision?

Think about a healthcare scenario where multiple regression
might be useful in a healthcare organization. Consider what your
dependent and independent variables might be for conducting a
multiple regression analysis. Build a small example, and run the
regression analysis.
Post a description of the dependent and
independent variables you will use for your multiple regression
analysis, and then explain your regression model in terms of your
dependent and independent variables. Explain how you might measure
your variables. Be specific and...

Concept Questions
We've discussed that a linear regression assumes the
relationship between variables is linear: it forms a constant
slope. But suppose the data is U-shaped or inverted U-shaped. How
would you created a linear regression so the line would follow this
data? (hint: think of what the equation for a U-shaped line looks
like.)
Suppose you applied a scalar to a variable. Then you used both
the original variable and the scaled variable as explanatory
variables. What would happen...

What is logistic regression? When should we use logistic
regression instead of linear regression?
Why cannot we use linear regression where logistic regression
is used? Provide the generalized multiple logistic regression
equation.

differences between two or more groups? Please describe the
situation, including how and why it would be used.
