y = 1E+07x + 2E+06 - What does it mean?


    Rep:
    I just made a graph in excel and had the equation of the regression line in there but don't know what it means.

    What do the 'E' stand for? Or how would it be normally?

    Rep:
    1E+07 = 1\times10^7

    Rep:
    so where would the 'x' fit in? Would it become 1 * 10 ^ 7 x?

    Yes

    Rep:
    Ok thanks.

    One last question, 1*10^7 is the slope while 2*10^6 is the y intercept right?
