The correct answer is:a weak positive correlation Explanation:An r-value, or correlation coefficient, tells us how closely the regression fits of the data. R-values range from -1 to 1; -1 indicates a perfect negative adjustment, while 1 indicates a perfect positive adjustment. The more negative r-value is -1, the better is the fit; the more positive the value of r is to 1, the better is the fit. The closer any of these are 0, the weaker is the adjustment.Since 0.29 is positive, this is an increase of fit. Since is closer to 0 than 1, it is a weak fit.
