Step 2 Formula the Worksheet Click an empty cell such as A8 . With the above cell selected, enter the following formula: =CORREL(A2:A7,B2:B7) Use Ctrl + Shift + Enter to have the formula return a value. Observe the result. If the result is between 80 and 100 % , then there is a strong positive correlation.  We also conclude that as the weight increases, systolic blood pressure as increases. Exercise 2 A. Interpret the Correlation Coefficient

Notice that the above data appears to have a linear trend with a positive slope ( upward from left  to right ) .  Hence the answer cannot be a negative value.  The data set does not appear to be in a perfect linear form hence

Unformatted text preview: r = 1 appears not to be the answer. The best answer appears to be r = 0.84 . Exercise 3 A. Interpret the Correlation Coefficient The data set appears to be in a perfect linear form with a decreasing slope, hence r = - 1 . Exercise 1 B. Find the Regression Equation Step 1 Retrieve or Copy the Given Data Step 2 Formula the Worksheet Highlight the cell range A32 : B32 . With the above region highlighted, enter the following formula: =LINEST(B2:B31,A2:A31) Use Ctrl + Shift + Enter to have the formula return the values. 0.555528219 25.02880809 This represents a line of best fit equal to: y = mx + b or y = 0.56x + 25.03...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
