# Running and interpreting linear regression

#1 - Using your workplace, present or prior, or an organization with which you are affiliated, identify a dependent variable and an independent variable of interest to you; gather a small data set for each of the variables; enter the data into Minitab; run the simple linear regression in Minitab, and interpret the regression output.

#2 - Choose a data set from the zip file, use regression to determine the potential linear relationship between two of the quantitative variables. Tell which data set you used, what the variables are, what they mean, and what the regression line tells you. What does the p-value for the slope tell you about the relationship?
