Q1-5 Q7-9 CHAPTER 3 Chapter Test, pp. 214–215 Solutions to Odd Number Problems 1. a) perfect negative linear correlation: a correlation with value –1. The dependent variable decreases at a constant rate as the independent variable increases. b) experimental research: the design of experiments and analysis of data to establish the presence of relationships between variables c) outlier: a data point or observation that lies a long way from the main body of data d) extraneous variable: a variable distinct from the dependent and independent variables that influences either the dependent and independent variable e) hidden variable: an extraneous variable that is not easily detected 3. a) A strong positive correlation is shown in the scatter plot.

### What students are saying

• 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.
