# Intercept Calculation – Simple Linear Regression Analysis

## 1. The equation of regression line

An equation of a dependent variable predicted by an independent variable consists of two parameters, a regression slope and intercept. This concept is likely to be introduce during the JC H2 mathematics class.

## 2. To determine the regression slope, the following formula can be used:

Regression Slope = Covariance(x,y)/Variance(x)

## 3. On the other hand, the intercept of the regression line is defined as:

Intercept = (Mean of y) – (Regression Slope)*(Mean of x)

**Exercise**

Calcuate the intercept of the following regression lines.
