## How to manually calculate liner and logarithmic trend forecast for next 6 months

I need to calculate AvgPatients for coming 6 months using below linear and logorothemic trend formulas

• A -Linear trend formula: Y= M*X + C
• B -Logarithmic trend formula: Y= B1*ln(X) + B0
• Avg patients for coming 6 months = 70*A+ 30*B

My Data like this..

I need to caluculate all forecast data using above formulas and create visual like below

Hi @Anonymous ,

I'm not clear about the following formulas, could you please explain it with some examples? M,X,A,B and C in the formula means fields or something else? How are the data of the current date and the data of the future date calculated? And if it involve any calculation, please provide the related calculation logic. As checked the visual screenshot, there are 4 lines on it. What does each line represent?

• A -Linear trend formula: Y= M*X + C
• B -Logarithmic trend formula: Y= B1*ln(X) + B0
• Avg patients for coming 6 months = 70*A+ 30*B

Best Regards

Due to forecast single line issue, I am manually calculating liner trend.

I calculated liner trend using below formula in a mesure but how to calculate for coming 6 months and how to display forecast data in different color

LinearTrend-A-MB =
VAR Known =
FILTER (
SELECTCOLUMNS (
CALCULATETABLE ( VALUES ( PatientsNormalized[Date] ), ALLSELECTED ('PatientsNormalized') ),
"Known[X]", 'PatientsNormalized'[Date],
"Known[Y]", PatientsNormalized[A-MB]
),
AND ( NOT ( ISBLANK ( Known[X] ) ), NOT ( ISBLANK ( Known[Y] ) ) )
)
VAR Count_Items =
COUNTROWS ( Known )
VAR Sum_X =
SUMX ( Known, Known[X] )
VAR Sum_X2 =
SUMX ( Known, Known[X] ^ 2 )
VAR Sum_Y =
SUMX ( Known, Known[Y] )
VAR Sum_XY =
SUMX ( Known, Known[X] * Known[Y] )
VAR Average_X =
AVERAGEX ( Known, Known[X] )
VAR Average_Y =
AVERAGEX ( Known, Known[Y] )
VAR Slope =
DIVIDE (
Count_Items * Sum_XY - Sum_X * Sum_Y,
Count_Items * Sum_X2 - Sum_X ^ 2
)
VAR Intercept = Average_Y
- Slope * Average_X
RETURN
SUMX ( DISTINCT ( PatientsNormalized[Date] ),
Intercept + Slope * PatientsNormalized[Date]
)

Calculated Liner regression Y= mx+c using below calculation

``````LinearTrend-A-MB =
VAR Known =
FILTER (
SELECTCOLUMNS (
CALCULATETABLE ( VALUES ( ConsumptionDate[DateNumber] ), ALLSELECTED (ConsumptionDate) ),
"Known[X]", 'ConsumptionDate'[DateNumber],
"Known[Y]", PatientsNormalized[A-MB]
),
AND ( NOT ( ISBLANK ( Known[X] ) ), NOT ( ISBLANK ( Known[Y] ) ) )
)
VAR Count_Items =
COUNTROWS ( Known )
VAR Sum_X =
SUMX ( Known, Known[X] )
VAR Sum_X2 =
SUMX ( Known, Known[X] ^ 2 )
VAR Sum_Y =
SUMX ( Known, Known[Y] )
VAR Sum_XY =
SUMX ( Known, Known[X] * Known[Y] )
VAR Average_X =
AVERAGEX ( Known, Known[X] )
VAR Average_Y =
AVERAGEX ( Known, Known[Y] )
VAR Slope =
DIVIDE (
Count_Items * Sum_XY - Sum_X * Sum_Y,
Count_Items * Sum_X2 - Sum_X ^ 2
)
VAR Intercept = Average_Y
- Slope * Average_X
RETURN
SUMX( DISTINCT ( ConsumptionDate[DateNumber] ),
Intercept + Slope * ConsumptionDate[DateNumber]
)``````

Please help me how to calculate logarithemic regression :  Y = a + b * ln (X) ?
