  1. Hello w3schools, I was using your site https://www.w3schools.com/python/python_ml_linear_regression.asp to teach Linear Regression today (4/14/2020). On this web page, it says slope, intercept, r, p, std_err = stats.linregress(x, y) and r is the r-squared value returned from the method scipy.stats.linregress(x, y). It is not. I checked https://docs.scipy.org/doc/scipy/reference/generated/scipy.stats.linregress.html about the method scipy.stats.linregress. r is the correlation coefficient of the data sets x and y, which ranges from -1 to 1. Your web page says r-squared value ranges from 0 to 1. One of your examples https://www.w3schools.com/python/trypython.asp?filename=demo_ml_r_squared contradicts this assertion. The returned value is -0.758591524376155, which is out of the range of r-squared. In fact, r-squared = (correlation coefficient)^2. Please correct this mistake. Thank you Wai Yin Mok
