    Validity of the regression equation.

    Along with this post, I have attached a screenshot of my assignment and I am confused about the validity of regressions equations. I plotted linear and exponential trend lines and got the regression equations. When I tried to verify the equations by substituting x-values in those equations, I got strange values as shown in the sheet. So, is it normal to get y-values or did I made any mistake. Any leads on this is highly appreciated. Thank you.

    If you analyze the residuals, you will find that Angola is an outlier. This might indicate that there is a lurking variable that, in addition to your current x, might better explain y.
