Multilinear Regression
Polynomial Regression

Logistic Regression
Naïve Bayes

K means clustering
Hierarchal clustering

Steps in building Linear Regression model :
Take the data and create a dataframe
Divide into Input and Output(x-i/p,y-o/p)
Import an algorithm (linear regression)
Call a Classifier/Regressor/Clusterer
Fit the model(map inputs with output) : Teaching step
Predict the output
Data visualization : plot a graph
Evaluation : r2 score (accuracy)

Steps in Buuilding ML model :
Take the data and create a dataframe
Preprocessing- filtering of data(data cleaning,encoding,Dropping values){EDA}
Data visualization : plot a graph
Divide into input and output(x-i/p,y-o/p)
Split x and y into train and test variables
Run a Classifier/Regressor/Clusterer
Fit the model(map inputs with output):Teaching step
Predict the output
Evaluation : r2 score

Logistic Regression : Any value given on a graph is rounded off to 0,1 as in a graph

Normalization / Scaling : The graph should be the same as in the previous graph before rounding off.
