## What is a positive scatter plot?

Scatter Plot: Strong Linear (positive correlation) Relationship. The slope of the line is positive (small values of X correspond to small values of Y; large values of X correspond to large values of Y), so there is a positive co-relation (that is, a positive correlation) between X and Y.

## How do you know if it is a positive or negative correlation?

If the correlation coefficient is greater than zero, it is a positive relationship. Conversely, if the value is less than zero, it is a negative relationship.

**What is the importance of scatter plot?**

Scatter plots are important in statistics because they can show the extent of correlation, if any, between the values of observed quantities or phenomena (called variables). If no correlation exists between the variables, the points appear randomly scattered on the coordinate plane.

### What are the characteristics of a scatter plot?

Scatterplots can visually show the strength of the relationship between the variables (i.e., the “scatter” in the plot: the more concentrated the dots are along the line, the stronger the relationship); whether there is a positive or negative association between the variables (i.e., whether the slope is positive or …

### What are the advantages and disadvantages of scatter graphs?

What are the Merits and Demerits of Scatter Diagram?

**What is the purpose of a regression line?**

Definition. A regression line is a straight line that de- scribes how a response variable y changes as an explanatory variable x changes. We often use a regression line to predict the value of y for a given value of x. Note.

## What is the type of data that a scatterplot is used to analyze?

Bivariate analysis is used to evaluate and analyze bivariate data. So, the type of data that a scatterplot is used to analyze bivariate data.

## What is the slope of a trend line that passes through the points 5 80 and 7 65?

-7.5

**How can Amani use the trend line to check the reasonableness of her answer?**

How can Amani use the trend line to check the reasonableness of her answer? She should expect the slope to be negative because the line tilts down moving from left to right on the graph. She should expect the slope to be negative because more points are below the line than above the line.

### Can you use a scatter plot that shows no association to make a prediction?

No, you can’t make a prediction from a scatter plot that doesn’t show any associations. If there is no trend, there is no way to make a prediction. A scatter plot is similar to a line graph where you can mark the appropriate data points in order to see if a trend is developing.

### How can Jordan use the plot to check the reasonableness of his answer?

How can Jordan use the plot to check the reasonableness of his answer? His slope should be positive because the coordinates of all the plotted points are positive. His slope should be negative because the x-coordinate of each plotted point is less than the y-coordinate.
