# could I please get help with a problem I am having trying to do a linear regression?

When R reads `data\$speed`, it 'thinks' you want the contents of that vector, but I'm guessing you just want to create a column with that name -- is that right?

yes, i figured it out. Thanks for the help

h say <- data.frame(speed=8.7)

predict(speedpower1, say)
Error in model.frame.default(Terms, newdata, na.action = na.action, xlev = object\$xlevels) :
object is not a matrixmm. then this.

any help. thanks

What is `speedpower1`? Where did it come from?

it is a "list of 12" values.

#plot the regression line
plot(data\$speed,data\$power, col = "blue", xlab = "speed", ylab = "power")
abline(speedpower1, lwd=5, col="red")

#prediction
say <- data.frame(speed = 8.7)
predict(speedpower1, say)

Could you post the output to `str(speedpower1)`?

Thanks for the help!!!

Sure: When you post here, you should do it this way:

`````````
<--- paste here, including the ```s
```
``````

Could you do that?

sorry. i am a beginner

No worries, but could you re-post

the way I suggested?

I am sorry. I dont understand. Do you want me to copy and paste code into another area? is the what the arrow means?

You could click the 'Edit' icon on your post, and type ``` before and after the code you already posted there -- could you try that?

I am still confused, but I did try to edit. Is there a faq i could read to understand better?

Could you run `summary(speedpower1)` and paste the output here between a pair of triple backticks, like this?

`````````
<---- paste output here
```

``````Call:

thanks for the help. I am trying to do a regression with predict function

This shows that you're predicting speed data from power data, so you need new power data to make new predictions.

This shows you're trying to supply speed data to the `predict()` function, but you need to supply power data. Could you try that?

yes, thank you for the help

Hi @JamesVU2000: You should post a separate question since this is unrelated to your original question, and you should include 1) the data you're using, 2) the code and packages you're using, and 3) the error messages you're getting. The best way to do this is to follow this guide: FAQ: How to do a minimal reproducible example ( reprex ) for beginners.
