3. ### Do I need to rescale variables to compare coefficients.

I'm running a regression analysis. My "Y" variable is Yearly_Spend while my "X" variables are Time_Spent (on website in minutes) and Length (of membership in years). Right now my results show Years has a bigger impact on Yearly_Spend. Do get a true apples to apples comparison of the...
4. ### Different coefficients from regression and trendline equation

I have two variables 'x' and 'y'. I took the natural log of the 'y' variable and then plotted the ln(y) vs x on a scatterplot in excel. I added a logarithmic trendline which seems to fit perfectly. The line equation is y = 1.1282*ln(x) + 12.183 with an R-Squared of 89%. However when I run the...
