FORECAST.LINEAR Function

The FORECAST.LINEAR function is one of the statistical functions. It is used to calculate, or predict, a future value by using existing values; the predicted value is a y-value for a given x-value. The known values are existing x-values and y-values, and the new value is predicted by using linear regression.

The FORECAST.LINEAR function syntax is:

FORECAST.LINEAR(x, known_y's, known_x's)
