Least squares

• A method used to calculate the slope of a trend line. This growth calculation uses the logarithm of the values. As the log of numbers less than 1.0 is mathematically undefined, the computer tests for this condition and alters the data values so that a calculation can be made. Least squares produce a more conservative result than the mid-point method.
