This paperwork of MATH 221 Week 2 DQ Regression includes:

Suppose you are given data from a survey showing the IQ of each person interviewed and the IQ of his or her mother. That is all the information that you have. Your boss has asked you to put together a report showing the relationship between these two variables. What could you present and why?

Here are a few questions that you can participate for discussion points from your study plan on correlation and regression that may help you toward understanding concepts and the quiz for Week 3. Please work on only one question at a time. Answers are posted at the end.

1. 1. Construct a scatter plot and determine the type of correlation using r for the following data

The ages(in years) of 6 children and the number of words in their vocabulary

a) Display the data in a scatter plot

b) Calculate the correlation coefficient r

c) Make a conclusion about the type of correlation

Study plan 9.1.22, 9.1.24
