Although this sounds complicated it is more easily understood if one realises that x andy have interchanged roles in obtaining this second regression line, which is known as the line of regression of l' on y. One based on a division of x values is a regression of y on x. A regression line of y on x, y = mx + c gives the best forecasts of values of y from known values of x.
