## How do you predict a regression equation?

We can use the regression line to predict values of Y given values of X. For any given value of X, we go straight up to the line, and then move horizontally to the left to find the value of Y. The predicted value of Y is called the predicted value of Y, and is denoted Y’.

## How do you forecast linear regression?

Statistical researchers often use a linear relationship to predict the (average) numerical value of Y for a given value of X using a straight line (called the regression line). If you know the slope and the y-intercept of that regression line, then you can plug in a value for X and predict the average value for Y.
