# Multiple Linear Regression

**Multiple Linear Regression** uses two or more independent variables to predict the value of the dependent variable.

- 1Linear regression is useful when we want to predict the values of a variable from its relationship with other variables. There are two different types of linear regression models ( simple linear re…

**Training set**: the data used to fit the model -**Test set**: the data partitioned away at the very start of the e… - 4Now we have the training set and the test set, let’s use scikit-learn to build the linear regression model! The steps for multiple linear regression in scikit-learn are identical to the steps for …
- 5You’ve performed Multiple Linear Regression, and you also have the predictions in y_predict. However, we don’t have insight into the data, yet. In this exercise, you’ll create a 2D scatterplot to s…
- 6Now that we have implemented Multiple Linear Regression, we will learn how to tune and evaluate the model. Before we do that, however, it’s essential to learn the equation behind it. **Equation 6….
