This paper proposes a solution that leverages Logistic Regression classification model to predict the possible values of feature matrix to be qualified as a specific class (from response vector). It provides the mechanism to obtain the value of a specific attribute of feature matrix where other attribute values of the feature matrix are known, and the user aims to reach to a specific class. The Logistic Regression model calculates the Logit or score for each class in the response vector. The proposed solution uses the weights of each feature calculated by the Logistic Regression model and calculates the value of the unknown feature that can make the complete set of feature matrix (derived value of the unknown attribute and known values of other attributes) reach the response class.
