Amazon ML is based on linear modeling. Recall the equation for a straight line in the plan:

This linear equation with coefficients (*a, b*) can be interpreted as a predictive linear model with *x* as the predictor and *y* as the outcome. In this simple case, we have two parameters (*a, b*) and one predictor *x*. An example can be that of predicting the height of children with respect to their weight and find some a and b such that the following equation is true:

Let's consider the classic *Lewis Taylor ...*
