This tool helps you predict future values based on a linear relationship from your provided data.

## Linear Estimator Calculator

This calculator estimates the value of a dependent variable (y) based on a linear equation of the form y = mx + c, where:

**x**is the independent variable input by the user.**m**is the slope of the line input by the user.**c**is the y-intercept input by the user.

### How to Use the Calculator

- Enter the value of the independent variable (x) in the “Input X value” field.
- Enter the value of the y-intercept (c) in the “Y-intercept (c)” field.
- Enter the value of the slope (m) in the “Slope (m)” field.
- Click the “Calculate” button to see the result.

### How it Calculates the Results

The calculator uses the linear equation y = mx + c:

**x**is taken from the “Input X value” field.**c**is taken from the “Y-intercept (c)” field.**m**is taken from the “Slope (m)” field.

The result is calculated by multiplying the slope (m) with the x value (x) and then adding the y-intercept (c).

For example, if x = 5, c = 2, and m = 3, the result y will be calculated as:

y = 3 * 5 + 2 = 17

### Calculator Limitations

Please note the following limitations:

- The calculator does not handle non-numeric inputs and will alert the user to provide valid values.
- The precision of the result is dependent on the input values and may be subject to floating-point arithmetic limitations inherent to JavaScript.
- This calculator assumes a simple linear relationship and may not be applicable for non-linear or more complex data models.
