Test yourself as a multivariate estimator

Estimating parameters which depend on more than 2 variables is quite difficult for humans without any additional tools. The following interactive example should give you an idea of your own capabilities as a multivariate estimator . You will even find it difficult to find only a rough estimate of the unknown parameters.

After having performed this experiment, you may be interested in the actual procedure used to estimate parameters which depend on multiple variables. One way to do this is to use multiple linear regression. Go to the  to calculate the results.
