I have a set number of questions that require an understanding of regression analysis and calculus. If the person to take this on is skilled, the project questions will be particularly easy. The first question as an example (as per the Data Questions word document attached) is as follows:
Q1. (1 mark): Consider the straight line through the origin given by y= b_1 x for some parameter b_1 . Given a set of data points for , formulate a minimisation problem for the least squares estimator estimator (b_1 ) ? for the parameter b_1.
Help on this project would be much appreciated!
