Y = mx + c
The equation of a straight line.
Interpolation
An estimation of a value inside the range of observed or recorded data.
Extrapolation
An estimation of a value outside the range of observed or recorded data.
Linear regression
A technique to model the relationship between two variables by fitting a straight line equation to observed data.
Least squares regression
A more accurate technique to find the line of best fit, however it is affected by outliers in the data set.
3 median regression
A technique to find the line of best fit, that is not affected by outliers in the data set.
