#### R Squared

- An R Squared value that is closer to positive 1 means that there is a strong positive correlation between the two variables; both variables increase or decrease at the same time with each other.
- A value closer to negative 1 means there is a strong negative correlation; when one variable increases, the other variable decreases.
- A value close to 0 means that there is a very weak correlation between the two variables and maybe no relationship exists.
