Hi, I have a set of scattered data and I can use the operator "\" to do a linear fit on the data. But is there a simple matlab function to get the R^2? I am trying to skip the calculation shown on page:
BTW, I don't have machine learning toolbox.
Thanks for any help. If there is no simple matlab function, then I will have to try to calculate by using the sample code shown on the above page.

It depends on the regression you’re doing. If you have a simple bivariable (as opposed to multivariable) linear regression, you can simply square one of the off-diagonal elements of the (2x2) matrix returned by corrcoef. It will give the same result.
