Well it is a negative correlation and it is really strong but it is impossible to go pasit -1.
the answer is D. -0.98
Hope this helps :)
The correlation is a negative if the Y value decreases as the x value increases. It is not -1.43 because it is not decraeseing that fast.
I had the same question.
Also hope this helps
The value of correlation coefficient ranges from -1 to 1. Any value outside this range cannot possibly be correlation coefficient of a scatter plot representing relationship between two variables.
The scatter plot given shows a positive correlation between average daily temperatures and number of visitors, as the trend shows the two variables are moving in the same direction. As daily temperature increases, visitors also increases.
From the options given, the only plausible correlation that can represent this positive relationship is A. 0.89.
Correlation coefficient is usually denoted with numbers ranging from 1 to -1. Automatically, this eliminates option C) as our possible answer, since -1.43 is outside the range.
The trend shown in the scatter plot describes a negative relationship because, as the values in the Y-axis decreases, the values at the X-axis increases. The possible correlation coefficient we are likely to get is one that is negative. This eliminates option A and option and option D is our possible correlation coefficient for the scatter plot given since both values are positive.
Option B) -0.98, best represents the correlation coefficient of the given scatter plot. Since the points on the scatter plot seem closely aligned on a straight line, a negative value if -0.98 is mostly the possible one to get.
