fit_intercept : [boolean, Default is True] Whether to calculate intercept for the model.
normalize : [boolean, Default is False] Normalisation before regression.
copy_X : [boolean, Default is True] If true, make a copy of X else overwritten.
n_jobs : [int, Default is 1] If -1 all CPU’s are used. This will speedup the working for large datasets to process.
In the given dataset, R&D Spend, Administration Cost and Marketing Spend of 50 Companies are given along with the profit earned. The target is to prepare ML model which can predict the profit value of a company if the value of its R&D Spend, Administration Cost and Marketing Spend are given.
