The R2 value for the model is significantly on the higher end with a 0.957 value. As we know this value is to be between 0%-100% the value shows that this model has a good line of best fit. Although closer it is to 100% it shows that there is a perfect fit. In my case it is on the higher end, which is relatively unlikely, although in my case this shows that the model is a good fit showing that the good fit is correlated between my dependent variable and independent variable. The adjusted R2 value is altered from the original R2 based on the number of predictors that are influencing the model. The adjusted R2 will influence the addition of new terms positively if the value has increased from the original R2 but in my case it tends to stay the same with a change to 0.956. This indicated that 95% of the data collected is close to the line of best fit With that small difference it cleary shows that the value have decreased proving that the number of predictor variables will negatively affect the dependent

The Shapiro-Wilk Normality test shws strong evidence gainst the hypothesis that the underlying distribution is normal (P-value=0.008103). The Normal Q-Q plot shows a slight curve through the points indicating slight right skewness.
