    Least squares technique

    can anyone derive estimates of the \beta's in the following models?

    1. Yi = \beta0 + \beta1(xi + 5) + \epsiloni
    2. Yi = \beta1xi + \epsiloni
    3. Yi = \beta0 + \epsiloni
    4. Yi = \beta0 + \beta1xi + \beta2wi + \epsiloni

    where i = 1....n

    i literally have no idea where im meant to start on this one?

    Here is the simplest possible explanation of the Least Square method. Other than that I would urge you to continue querying the forum.
