An online quadratic regression calculator helps you to determine the quadratic regression equation representing the parabola that best suits the data points. We have arranged a proper guide in this content so that you may not face any hurdle while doing such analysis.

Stay focused!

In statistical analysis:

**“A particular operation that is performed on a set of data points to find the equation of the parabola is known as regression analysis”**

You can consider it as an advancement of linear regression.

You can work for the quadratic regression equations in the following form:

$$ y = ax^{2} + bx + c $$

Our free quadratic regression calculator determines the equation in the same form but in a fraction of seconds to save your precious time.

So be ready as we are going to start our roller coaster of various formulae that you need to memorize during this analysis. Keep scrolling!

As we have **x** and **y** values in the points defined, so we have to determine the mean for both **x** and **y** values as follows:

$$ \bar{x} = \frac{1}{n}\sum_{i=1}^nx_{i} $$

$$ \bar{x^{2}} = \frac{1}{n}\sum_{i=1}^nx_{i}^{2} $$

$$ \bar{y} = \frac{1}{n}\sum_{i=1}^ny_{i} $$

After doing so, we need to calculate a series of sums with the help of the following formulae:

$$ S_{xx} = \sum_{i=1}^n \left(x_{i} – \bar{x}\right)^2 $$

$$ S_{xy} = \sum_{i=1}^n \left(x_{i} – \bar{x}\right) \left(y_{i} – \bar{y}\right) $$

$$ S_{xx^{2}} = \sum_{i=1}^n \left(x_{i} – \bar{x}\right) \left(x_{i}^2 – \bar{x^{2}}\right) $$

$$ S_{x^{2}x^{2}} = \sum_{i=1}^n \left(x_{i}^2 – \bar{x^{2}}\right)^2 $$

$$ S{x^{2}y} = \sum_{i=1}^n \left(x_{i}^2 – \bar{x^{2}}\right) \left(y_{i} – \bar{y}\right) $$

Next, we need to determine the coefficients of the equation as follows:

$$ a = \bar{y}-b\bar{x}-c\bar{x^2} $$

$$ b = \dfrac{S_{xy}S_{x^2x^2}-S_{x^2y}S_{xx^2}}{S_{xx}S_{x^2x^2}-(S_{xx^2})^2} $$

$$ c = \dfrac{S_{x^2y}S_{xx}-S_{xy}S_{xx^2}}{S_{xx}S_{x^2x^2}-(S_{xx^2})^2} $$

Let us solve an example so that you understand the proper use of all formulae to determine the equation. Just stay connected!

**Example:**

Determine quadratic regression equation for the following data set of points:

$$ (12, 13), (11, 17), (14, 11), (9, 12), (2, 11), (13, 10) $$

**Solution:**

From the data set given, we can separate the values of X and Y as follows:

$$ X = 12, 11, 14, 9, 2, 13 $$

$$ y = 13, 17, 11, 12, 11, 10 $$

First of all, we have to determine the mean of both X and Y values:

$$ Mean X = \bar{x} = \frac{1}{n}\sum_{i=1}^nx_{i} $$

$$ mean X = \bar{x} =\frac{1}{n} \left(12 + 11 + 14 + 9 + 2 + 13\right) $$

$$ Mean X = \bar{x} = \frac{\left(12 + 11 + 14 + 9 + 2 + 13\right)}{6} $$

$$ Mean X = \bar{x} = \frac{61}{6} $$

$$ Mean X = \bar{x} = 10.166 $$

Now we have:

$$ Mean Y = \bar{y} = \frac{1}{n}\sum_{i=1}^ny_{i} $$

$$ Mean Y = \bar{y} = \frac{1}{n} \left(13 + 17 + 11 + 12 + 11 + 10\right) $$

$$ Mean Y = \bar{y} = \frac{\left(13 + 17 + 11 + 12 + 11 + 10\right)}{6} $$

$$ Mean Y = \bar{y} = \frac{74}{6} $$

$$ Mean Y = \bar{y} = 12.33 $$

Also we have:

$$ \bar{x^{2}} = \frac{1}{n}\sum_{i=1}^nx_{i}^{2} $$

$$ \bar{x^{2}} = \frac{1}{n} \left(12 + 11 + 14 + 9 + 2 + 13\right)^2 $$

$$ \bar{x^{2}} = \frac{\left(61\right)^2}{6} $$

$$ \bar{x^{2}} = \frac{3721}{6} $$

$$ \bar{x^{2}} = 620.16 $$

Now we need to calculate the following values and arrange them in the table just like below:

$$\left(x_{i} – \bar{x}\right)^2 $$ | $$ \left(x_{i} – \bar{x}\right)\left(y_{i} – \bar{y}\right) $$ | $$ \left(x_{i} -\bar{x}\right)\left({x_i}^2 – \bar{x^2}\right) $$ | $$ \left({x_i}^2 – \bar{x^2}\right)^2 $$ | $$ \left({x_i}^2 – \bar{x^2}\right) \left(y_{i} – \bar{y}\right) $$ |

$$ 3.36 $$ | $$ 1.223 $$ | $$ 45.519 $$ | $$ 616.678 $$ | $$ 16.564 $$ |

$$ 0.694 $$ | $$ 3.888 $$ | $$ 1.527 $$ | $$ 3.36 $$ | $$ 8.555 $$ |

$$ 14.692 $$ | $$ -5.109 $$ | $$ 294.501 $$ | $$ 5903.31 $$ | $$ -102.418 $$ |

$$ 1.362 $$ | $$ 0.389 $$ | $$ 44.541 $$ | $$ 1456.72 $$ | $$ 12.71 $$ |

$$ 66.7 $$ | $$ 10.887 $$ | $$ 940.569 $$ | $$ 13263.438 $$ | $$ 153.518 $$ |

$$ 8.026 $$ | $$ -6.609 $$ | $$ 141.177 $$ | $$ 2483.328 $$ | $$ -116.26 $$ |

Calculating important summations as follows:

$$ S_{xx} = \sum_{i=1}^n \left(x_{i} – \bar{x}\right)^2 $$

$$ S_{xx} = 3.36 + 0.694 + 14.692 + 1.3612 + 66.7 + 8.026 $$

$$ S_{xx} = 94.83 $$

$$ S_{xy} = \sum_{i=1}^n \left(x_{i} – \bar{x}\right) \left(y_{i} – \bar{y}\right) $$

$$ S_{xy} = 1.223 + 3.888 + (-5.109) + 0.389 + 10.887 + (-6.609) $$

$$ S_{xy} = 1.223 + 3.888 – 5.109 + 0.389 + 10.887 – 6.609 $$

$$ S_{xy} = 4.67 $$

$$ S_{xx^{2}} = \sum_{i=1}^n \left(x_{i} – \bar{x}\right) \left(x_{i}^2 – \bar{x^{2}}\right) $$

$$ S_{xx^{2}} = 45.519 + 1.527 + 294.501 + 44.541 + 940.569 + 141.177 $$

$$ S_{xx^{2}} = 1467.83 $$

$$ S_{x^{2}x^{2}} = \sum_{i=1}^n \left(x_{i}^2 – \bar{x^{2}}\right)^2 $$

$$ S_{x^{2}x^{2}} = 616.678 + 3.36 + 5903.31 + 1456.72 + 13263.438 + 2483.328 $$

$$ S_{x^{2}x^{2}} = 23726.83 $$

$$ S{x^{2}y} = \sum_{i=1}^n \left(x_{i}^2 – \bar{x^{2}}\right) \left(y_{i} – \bar{y}\right) $$

$$ S{x^{2}y} = 16.564 + 8.555 + (-102.418) + 12.71 + 153.518 + (-116.26) $$

$$ S{x^{2}y} = 16.564 + 8.555 – 102.418 + 12.71 + 153.518 – 116.26 $$

$$ S{x^{2}y} = -27.33 $$

Determining the coefficients of the equation:

$$ b=\dfrac{S_{xy}S_{x^2x^2}-S_{x^2y}S_{xx^2}}{S_{xx}S_{x^2x^2}-(S_{xx^2})^2} $$

$$ b = \frac{\left(4.67\right) \left(23726.83\right) + \left(27.33\right) \left(1467.83\right)}{\left(94.83\right) \left(23726.83\right) – \left(1467.83\right)^2} $$

$$ b = \frac{110804.2961 + 40115.7939}{2250015.2889 – 2154524.9089} $$

$$ b = \frac{150920.09}{95490.38} $$

$$ b = 1.580 $$

Now we have:

$$ c = \dfrac{S_{x^2y}S_{xx}-S_{xy}S_{xx^2}}{S_{xx}S_{x^2x^2}-(S_{xx^2})^2} $$

$$ c = \frac{\left(-27.33\right) \left(94.83\right) – \left(4.67\right) \left(1467.83\right)}{\left(94.83\right) \left(23726.83\right) – \left(1467.83\right)^2} $$

$$ c = \frac{-2591.7039 – 6854.7661}{2250015.2889 – 2154524.9089} $$

$$ c = \frac{-9446.47}{95490.38} $$

$$ c = -0.098 $$

Now we have:

$$ a = \bar{y}-b\bar{x}-c\bar{x^2} $$

$$ a = 12.33 – \left(1.580\right) \left(10.167\right) – \left(-0.098\right) \left(103.367889\right) $$

$$ a = 12.33 – 16.06386 + 10.130053122 $$

$$ a = 8.05845 $$

At last, we have to find correlation coefficient as follows:

$$ \text{Correlation Coefficient} = r = \frac{n \left(\sum xy\right) – \left(\sum x\right) \left(\sum y\right)}{\sqrt([n\sum x^{2} – \left(\sum x\right)^2][n\sum y^{2} – \left(\sum y\right)^2])} $$

$$ \text{Correlation Coefficient} = r = 0.3213 $$ (for calculations, click Correlation Coefficient Calculator)

Now the quadratic regression equation is as follows:

$$ y = ax^{2} + bx + c $$

$$ y = 8.05845x^{2} + 1.57855x – 0.09881 $$

Which is our required answer.

A specific value that distributes your graph into two section i.e; one is rejected and other one is that which is accepted is known as critical value.

The following equation shows the general form of the cubic regression below:

$$ y = a + bx + cx^{2} + dx^{3} $$

Where:

**a,** **b**, **c**, and **d **are the coefficients of the regression equation respectively.

The principle purpose of the regression analysis is to analyze a considerable effect of the independent variable on the dependent variable.
