A Methodology to Perform Linear Regression
> The challenge is to build a predictor that takes in a set of tab delimited floating values and predicts a floating value.
> This is fundamentally a linear regression problem and requires some special treatment to ensure that the data that goes into the regression model is clean and does not have issues such as multi-colinearity and hetereoskedacitic. Also, it would be important to detect if there are external factors that affect the prediction but are not captured as features.
