This calculator performs **Logarithmic Regression** and produces an equation for the line of best fit for the provided predictor and response values.

The equation takes the form: \( y = A + B \cdot \ln(x) \)

To use the calculator, provide a list of values for the predictor and the response, ensuring they are the same length, and then click the "Do Logarithmic Regression" button.

**Logarithmic Regression Equation:**

y = A + Bln(x)

**Correlation Coefficient (r):**

## Logarithmic Regression and Correlation Coefficient

The **Logarithmic Regression** finds the best-fit equation in the form:

This regression is useful for relationships where the change in \(Y\) is proportional to the natural logarithm of \(X\). The correlation coefficient \(r\) tells us how well the model fits the data.

### Correlation Coefficient Interpretation

You can interpret the correlation coefficient \(r\) as follows:

**0.7 < |r| ≤ 1**— Strong correlation**0.4 < |r| < 0.7**— Moderate correlation**0.2 < |r| < 0.4**— Weak correlation**0 ≤ |r| < 0.2**— No correlation

### Caveats and Conditions

**Log Transformation:**Logarithmic regression assumes that the predictor values \(X\) are positive and that their logarithmic relationship to \(Y\) is linear.**Outliers:**Large outliers can significantly distort the regression equation and the correlation coefficient.**Non-Linear Relationships:**Logarithmic regression is only suitable for relationships that follow the logarithmic pattern. Other relationships may not fit well.
