Question

In the context of this exercise, what else does the LinearRegression function provide?

Answer

There are a few other things that the LinearRegression function provides and lets us do.

When creating a LinearRegression model, you can choose to determine whether it should calculate any intercept for the model, by setting the fit_intercept parameter to True or False. If you choose not to calculate any intercept for the model, it will except that the data is already centered. In addition, you can also set other parameters such as normalize, copy_X and n_jobs.

In addition, you can obtain all the parameters of the model’s estimator using the get_params() method, and, you can use the score() method to obtain the R^2 score, which is a value telling how close the data is to the regression line.
