Unformatted text preview: between TOST time and RBOT time. (b) The value of r does not depend on which of the two variables is labeled as the x variable. Thus, had we let x = RBOT time and y = TOST time, the value of r would have remained the same. (c) The value of r does not depend on the unit of measure for either variable. Thus, had we expressed RBOT time in hours instead of minutes, the value of r would have remained the same. Problem 3.16 The value of the sample correlation coefficient using the squared y values would not necessarily be approximately 1. If the y-values are greater than 1, then the squared y-values would differ from each other by more than the y-values differ from one another. Hence, the relationship between x and y 2 would be less like a straight line, and the resulting value of the correlation coefficient would decrease....
