    Question on Impact of Independent Variable Interpretation

    Hi, Suppose i have a normal linear regression construct, like Sales = Intercept + M1*X1 + M2*X2 + M3*X3 Suppose X1,X2,X3 are the statistically significant variables from the model. I want to create some sort of a simulator which says , for X% increase in X1, what is increase in Y...
