Hi, guys. I have a question about your display of the LTE.
The LTE I got on one dataset was Yt = 0.0210.000t This is not in a form I recognize, and it doesn’t conform to the equation form on your site/help either, which is Tt = a + b.Yt , which is a standard form without residuals.
The latter I recognize and could use. The first is isn’t. I’d think maybe the decimal points might be place indicators for the terms (.0210 would be a, for example) but the true value for an intercept of the data is .0207, so that doesn’t seem to work. Can you explain the calculated format, please?
