  We need a LOT more information to answer your question ...
please read the posting guide and tell us in a bit more
detail what you're trying to do.  It sounds like you
have a graphical figure of a regression line in a paper
and want to know the R^2, which is basically impossible
unless you have the original data, or unless the plot
shows the data points and you can retrieve by digitizing
(look for the g3data software tool).
