## Function Linear-Regression-Minimal

(

**linear-regression-minimal** < dv > < iv > )

Calculates the slope and intercept of the regression line. This function

takes two equal-length sequences of raw data. Note that the dependent variable,

as always, comes first in the argument list.

You should first look at your data with a scatter plot to see if a linear model

is plausible. See the manual for a fuller explanation of linear regression

statistics.
