Question

**Determine whether the following statements are true or
false. If the statement is false, then explain why the statement is
false or rewrite the statement so that it is true.**

**If a scatterplot shows a linear association
between two numerical variables, then a correlation coefficient
that is close to 1 indicates a strong positive trend and a
correlation coefficient that is close to 0 indicates a strong
negative trend.**

Answer #1

This statement is **False** because correlation
coefficient lies from -1 to 1 where close to 1 values show strong
positive and close to -1 values show strong negative correlation
coefficient.

So, the correct statement is:

**If a scatterplot shows a linear association
between two numerical variables, then a correlation coefficient
that is close to 1 indicates a strong positive trend and a
correlation coefficient that is close to -1 indicates a strong
negative trend.**

Please comment if any doubt. Thank you.

Determine whether the following statement is true or false
and then explain why in one or two sentences.
The membrane potential results from charges moving across the
membrane that has a very small effect on the concentrations of the
ions, and as a result there is only a very minor difference in the
number of negative and positive ions on each side of the membrane.

i) A p-value is the probability that the null hypothesis is
false. ii) A chi-square test statistic can never be negative.
iii) If we reject the null hypothesis that a population

Which of the following statements concerning regression and
correlation analysis is/are true?
A. If the correlation coefficient is zero, then there is no linear
relationship between the two variables.
B. A negative value for the correlation coefficient indicates that
high values of the independent variable are correlated with low
values of the dependent variable.
C. The slope coefficient for a simple linear regression model
measures the expected change in the independent variable for a unit
change in the dependent variable....

Suppose the correlation coefficient between two variables is
found to be 0.83. Which of the following statements are true?
small values of one variable are associated with large values of
the other variable
the relationship between the variables is weak
a scatter plot of the points would show an upward trend
low values of one variable tend to be paired with low values of
the other variable
there is a strong positive curvilinear relationship between the
variables
there is a...

Determine whether the statement is true or false. If it is
false, rewrite it as a true statement.
As the size of a sample increases, the standard deviation of
the distribution of sample means increases.
Choose the correct choice below.
A. This statement is false. A
true statement is, "As the size of a sample decreases, the
standard deviation of the distribution of sample means
decreases."
B. This statement is false. A
true statement is, "As the size of a...

Which of the following statements concerning the linear
correlation coefficient is/are true?
A: If the linear correlation coefficient for two variables is zero,
then there is no relationship between the variables.
B: If the slope of the regression equation is negative, then the
linear correlation coefficient is negative.
C: The value of the linear correlation coefficient always lies
between -1 and 1 inclusive.
D: A correlation coefficient of 0.62 suggests a stronger linear
relationship than a correlation coefficient of -0.82.

1. The correlation for a set of data is r=0.99. The residuals
plot for that set of data shows a curved pattern, like a "U" shape.
What conclusion about the data do you reach based on this
information?
A. The association between the explanatory and response
variables is strong, positive and linear.
B. It is not appropriate to use a linear regression model as the
scatterplot is curved.
C. The association between the explanatory and response
variables is strong, positive...

Which of the following statements is FALSE?
Group of answer choices
Older men tend to have lower muscle density. Hence, the
correlation between “age” and “muscle density” in older men must be
negative.
Older children tend to be taller than younger children. Hence,
the correlation between “age” and “height” in children must be
positive.
A researcher finds the correlation between two variables is
close to 0, so the two variables must be strongly related.
Taller people tend to be heavier...
