All what we want to emphasise is that R stores all results of the linear regression function in the object M. residual" "terms" "effects" "assign" "xlevels" "model" You can access the coefficients or residuals by using M$coefficients, M$residuals, and so on. Hence, M is a list containing objects of different dimensions, just as our earlier example with Y.
