## Simple Linear Regression in Regression Analysis

Regression Analysis explores the relationship between a quantitative response variable and one or more explanatory variables. If there is only one explanatory variable, it’s called **simple linear regression** and if there is more than one explanatory variable then it is called **multiple regression**.

If we are using one variable to predict the other, we call the variable that we are predicting **y** also called the dependent variable or response variable, and the variable we are using to predict is called the x variable also called the independent variable or explanatory variable.
