Calculating and Graphing Paired-Variable Statistical Data
k k k k k Linear Regression Graph
Linear regression uses the method of least squares to plot a straight line that passes close to
as many data points as possible, and returns values for the slope and y-intercept
(y-coordinate when x = 0) of the line.
The graphic representation of this relationship is a linear regression graph.

k k k k k Med-Med Graph
When it is suspected that there are a number of extreme values, a Med-Med graph can be
used in place of the least squares method. This is similar to linear regression, but it
minimizes the effects of extreme values.
