7.1 Draw Scatter Plots and Best-Fitting Lines Example 1 Describe and estimate correlation coefficients Describe the data as having a positive correlation, a negative correlation, or approximately no correlation. Tell whether the correlation coefficient for the data is closest to or a. Solution a.The scatter plot shows a strong _________ correlation. negative So, the best estimate given is r = ____.

4
So, r is between ___ and ___, but not too close to either one. The best estimate given is r = _____. 7.1 Draw Scatter Plots and Best-Fitting Lines Example 1 Describe and estimate correlation coefficients Describe the data as having a positive correlation, a negative correlation, or approximately no correlation. Tell whether the correlation coefficient for the data is closest to or b. Solution b.The scatter plot shows a weak _________ correlation. positive
