For this relationship, write down the units of: a) the correlation r between height and weight. r is unitless b) a and b where bx a y + = ˆ is the regression line of weight on height. unit of a: inches unit of b: kg/inches c) X , the mean height. inches d) S x 2 , the variance of the variable height. inches 2 2.
