### Introduction

• Multiple linear regression is a statistical method used to analyze the relationship between a dependent variable and multiple independent variables. It is an extension of simple linear regression, which involves only one independent variable.The goal is to identify the linear relationship between the dependent variable and two or more independent variables.
• Our SaaS Cloud Platform will provide a web-based solution useful to estimate the relationship between two or more independent variables and one dependent variable when the variables follow the normality assumptions.
• Our SaaS Cloud Platform will provide access to MLR algorithm anytime, anywhere.

### Why choose smartMLR?

• Predictive modeling: Multiple linear regression can be used for predictive modeling. By analyzing the relationships between the independent variables and the dependent variable, you can create a model that predicts the value of the dependent variable for new data points.
• Hypothesis testing: Multiple linear regression can be used to test hypotheses about the relationships between the independent variables and the dependent variable. For example, you may want to test whether there is a significant linear relationship between a person’s education level, work experience, and their salary.
• Variable selection: Multiple linear regression can help you to identify which independent variables are most important in explaining the variation in the dependent variable. This can be useful for variable selection and feature engineering in machine learning models.
• Control for confounding variables: Multiple linear regression can be used to control for confounding variables. By including multiple independent variables in the model, you can account for the effects of other variables that may be related to the dependent variable.
• Interpretation: Multiple linear regression provides coefficients for each independent variable, which can help you to interpret the relationships between the variables. The coefficients represent the change in the dependent variable for a one-unit change in the independent variable, holding all other variables constant.
