Question

A correlation of r = .85 is found between weekly sales of
firewood and cough

drops over a 1-year period. Which of the following is true?

- (a) There is a pretty strong positive linear relationship between sales of firewood and cough drops.
- (b) Fire must be the cause of coughing.
- (c) Temperature is a possible lurking variable that is “behind” this relationship.
- (d) Both (a) and (c) are true.
- (e) None of the above.

Answer #1

correlation of r = .85 is given..

That means that there is strong (high) linear relationship between sales of firewood and cough drops.

Since, **Correlation** is defined as a measure of
the linear relationship between two quantitative variables.

(If r =-.85 then we conclude that there is high negative linear relationship between sales of firewood and cough drops.)

Scattered plot of sales of firewood and cough drops has a linear pattern since correlation of r = .85 .

Answer:.

**(a) There is a pretty strong positive linear
relationship between sales of firewood and cough
drops.**

Assuming a linear relationship between X and
Y, if the coefficient of correlation (r) equals
−0.75, this means that:

Y.
d.
None of these choices are true.
Which of the following is a property of the slope,
b1?

Two-way ANOVA

1. r = -.85 and p<.05 between employment and GPA.
What would you conclude from these results?
a. There is a strong negative and statistically significant
correlation between employment and GPA among college students. This
means that students who work more tend to have lower GPA and vice
versa, to small extent.
b. There is a moderate negative and statistically significant
correlation between employment and GPA among college students. This
means that students who work more tend to have higher...

Context: You own three Chick-Fil-A franchises. In your
sales district, you know that the average weekly sales are
$542,000. One of your stores (Clarkesville store) brought in an
average of $530,000 each week in the last year.
Assume that you conducted the most appropriate test and found
the following:
Z = 3.32
Lower Critical Value = -2.00
Upper Critical Value = 2.00
P-value = 0.0015
Level of significance = 0.05
-----------------------------------------------------------
1a) Based on this information, which of the following...

a. If r is a negative number, then b (in the line of regression
) is negative.
true or false
b.The line of regression is use to predict the theoric average
value of y that we expect to occur when we know the value of x.
true or false
c. We can predict no matter the strength of the correlation
coefficient.
true or false
d. The set of all possible values of r is, {r: -1< r <
