Q:
# HELP NOW I WILL GIVE BRAINLEST!!!What type of association does the graph show between x and y? A scatter plot is shown. Data points are located at 1 and 5, 2 and 4, 3 and 3, 4 and 2, 5 and 1, 6 and 0. Linear positive association Nonlinear positive association Linear negative association Nonlinear negative association

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer: Choice C) Linear negative association

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The given points are:

(1,5)

(2,4)

(3,3)

(4,2)

(5,1)

(6,0)

The x values are: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

The y values are: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0

In the same order

As x increases by 1, y decreases by 1

So we have perfect negative linear correlation

Side Note: The equation of the line that goes through all of the points is the equation y = -x+6 which can be written as x+y = 6. This line has a negative slope (slope = -1)
