Fitted values are also called fits or . The fitted values are point estimates of the mean response for given values of the predictors. The values of the predictors are also called x-values. Minitab uses the regression equation and the variable settings to calculate the fit.
The type of fitted values that Minitab displays depends on the type of response variable in your model. For instance, Minitab displays means, probabilities, or standard deviations depending on whether you have continuous or count measurements, binary data, or models that use Analyze
Fitted values are calculated by entering x-values into the model equation for a response variable.
For example, if the equation is y = 5 + 10x, the fitted value for the x-value, 2, is 25 (25 = 5 + 10(2)).
