We can create a linear regression model in Python by using scikit-learn's LinearRegression method. As this is the first instance where we are going to discuss implementing a model using Python, we will take a detour from our discussion of the algorithm and learn some essential packages that are required to create a model in Python:
- numpy: It is a numeric Python module used for mathematical functions. It provides robust data structures for effective computation of multi-dimensional arrays and matrices.
- pandas: It provides the DataFrame object for data manipulation. A DataFrame can hold different types of values and arrays. It is used to read, write, and manipulate data in Python.
- scikit-learn ...
