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