Lunar exploration is very important in the world. Investigation of lunar surface materials such as Agglutinitic Glass (A), Morris Is/FeO (M), LSCC Is/FeO (L), Total Pyx (T) and Plagioclase (P) is increase last years. The prediction of lunar surface materials including A, M, L, T and P is significant. In this study, the A (one of the important materials in the moon) were predicted by applying the linear regression analysis model. The R-2 and 2(adj)(2) are calculated that 81.20% and 75.83%, respectively. Finally, it was concluded that A can reliably be predicted by using the linear regression analysis model.
