What is Linear Regression?

Linear regression is a basic and commonly used type of predictive analysis.  FYI, Predictive analytics involves extracting data from existing data sets with the goal of identifying trends and patterns. These trends and patterns are then used to predict future outcomes and trends. Predictive analytics is the branch of the advanced analytics which is used to make …

Uni-variate distribution relationships

In statistics, a univariate distribution is a probability distribution of only one random variable. This is in contrast to a multivariate distribution, the probability distribution of a random vector (consisting of multiple random variables). Below is the quick overview of useful univariate relationships for aspiring data science lovers.
