**Given:**

The three different independent variables: unemployment rate, average years of education for the unemployment rate, average years of school and the percentage of all political ads that used negative campaigning is given table below.

**Approach:**

The *Y* intercept (*a*) is the point of intersection of the regression line and the *y* axis.

The slope (*b*) of the regression line is the amount of change in the dependent variable (*Y*) by a unit change in the independent variable (*X*).

If the two variables are unrelated, the regression line would be parallel to the *x* axis.

**Formula used:**

The model for the least square regression line is defined as,

Where *Y* is the dependent variable,

Where *Y* is the dependent variable and *X* is the independent variable,

*b* is the slope of the regression line.
