# How to Display Regression Equation in Seaborn Regplot

You can use the seaborn regplot function to plot a linear regression model fit to a dataset.

Unfortunately there is no built-in feature in seaborn to extract the regression equation of the line, but you can use the scipy.stats.linregress function to quickly find the regression coefficients:

```import scipy
import seaborn as sns

#create regplot
p = sns.regplot(data=df, x=df.x, y=df.y)

#calculate slope and intercept of regression equation
slope, intercept, r, p, sterr = scipy.stats.linregress(x=p.get_lines().get_xdata(),
y=p.get_lines().get_ydata())
```

The following example shows how to use this syntax in practice.

## Example: Display Regression Equation in Seaborn Regplot

Suppose we have the following pandas DataFrame that contains information about the hours studied and final exam score of various students:

```import pandas as pd

#create DataFrame
df = pd.DataFrame({'hours': [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10],
'score': [77, 79, 84, 80, 81, 89, 95, 90, 83, 89]})

#view DataFrame
print(df)

hours  score
0      1     77
1      2     79
2      3     84
3      4     80
4      5     81
5      6     89
6      7     95
7      8     90
8      9     83
9     10     89
```

Suppose we would like to plot the data points and add a fitted regression line to the data.

We can use the following syntax to do so:

```import scipy
import seaborn as sns

#create regplot
p = sns.regplot(data=df, x=df.hours, y=df.score)

#calculate slope and intercept of regression equation
slope, intercept, r, p, sterr = scipy.stats.linregress(x=p.get_lines().get_xdata(),
y=p.get_lines().get_ydata())

#display slope and intercept of regression equation
print(intercept, slope)

77.39999999999995 1.3272727272727356
``` From the output we can see that the regression line has the following equation:

y = 77.4 + 1.327

If we would like to display this equation on the seaborn regplot, we can use the text() function from matplotlib:

```import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import scipy
import seaborn as sns

#create regplot
p = sns.regplot(data=df, x=df.hours, y=df.score)

#calculate slope and intercept of regression equation
slope, intercept, r, p, sterr = scipy.stats.linregress(x=p.get_lines().get_xdata(),
y=p.get_lines().get_ydata())

plt.text(2, 95, 'y = ' + str(round(intercept,3)) + ' + ' + str(round(slope,3)) + 'x')``` Notice that the regression equation is now displayed in the top left corner of the plot.

Note that within the text() function, we specified that the regression equation should be displayed starting at the (x, y) coordinates of (2, 95).

Feel free to modify these coordinates to display the regression equation where you’d like in your own plot.
