The LSE estimator tool helps you accurately estimate the least square errors for your data.

## How to use the Least Squares Estimator Calculator

Input your data points and target values as comma-separated lists. Specify initial values for Theta 0 and Theta 1, which are the coefficients of your linear equation. Set your desired learning rate and the number of iterations for optimization. Click “Calculate” to estimate the values of Theta 0 and Theta 1 that minimize the sum of squared errors.

## How It Works

The calculator uses gradient descent to minimize the sum of squared errors between the predicted and target values. It starts with the initial values of Theta 0 and Theta 1, then iteratively adjusts them based on the learning rate and calculated errors for a specified number of iterations. This approach aims to find the optimal linear equation that best fits the input data.

## Limitations

Though the calculator uses a widely accepted method for linear regression, its accuracy depends on appropriate choices of the learning rate and number of iterations. Too high a learning rate may fail to converge to the optimal solution, while too low a rate may require impractically many iterations. Real-world data often contains noise and outliers that can affect the results, and interpreting results requires statistical expertise.
