If r 2 = 0, the regression line is a horizontal line III. No pattern in the residual plot is an indication that a nonlinear model will show a better fit to the data than a straight line regression model. IV. A correlation of r = -1 means there is no relationship 2. Consider the regression line: y = 2105 – 5.5x where y = number of deaths due to cancer per 100,000 people (from 1970 to 2000) and x = the year. What is indicated by the slope of the line? 3.
