Hats Off To You Card

A graduation card for your math and stats nerd!

Or a thank you card for your math and stats teacher!

In mathematics and statistics, y with that accent on top is called y-hat. Therefore, y without the accent means it has no hat. The equation shown is a rearrangement of the equation to calculate the difference between "y with a hat" and "y without a hat." Hence the caption "hats off."

For a nerdier explanation, "y-hat" represents a predicted value on a regression line, whereas "y" represents the true observed value of a data point. The calculation of the difference between "y" and "y-hat" is a calculation of the residual... it tells you how close or far your predicted value is from the actual value.
