Regression Analysis

Describe the research issue, problem, or opportunity and the accompanying data. Then, perform a regression analysis on your data using any method of computation. Finally, interpret the results of your regression analysis, state the limitations of your analysis, and describe the significance of the results as a whole. Be sure to attach the results of the regression analysis created to your paper.

Note: Methods of computation could include the usage of Excel or by hand computation.

You want to look at the relationship between minutes brushing during no candy days and the candy days. You would do 3 regression analyses: one for candy1 compared to candy2, one for candy1 compared to no candy, and one for candy2 compared to no candy.

For example, lets look at comparing candy1 and no candy. Let the no candy times be the x values and the candy times be the y values. If you graphed those points and they fell in a linear pattern, that would mean that the value of one was dependent on the value of the other. If they didn't fall in a pattern, that would mean the two variables are independent of one another.
