Summary: The article presents a discussion on the topic of Least-Squares Regression. Explored is the statistical theory depicting the slope and intercept of Least-Squares Regression as well as the point-slope formulation of the equation of a line connecting two data points. Analyzed is the Pearson Correlation Coefficient along with Euclidean axioms.
