Correlation/Scatter Plots & Linear Regression

A Scatter Plot graphs compares the relationship between two ____________ variables Continuous
True or​ false: Correlation implies causation. False
If the linear correlation between two variables is​ negative, what can be said about the slope of the regression​ line? a. Positive b. Negative c. More information is needed b. Negative
True or false: The​ least-squares regression line always travels through the point (x bar, y bar). True
A ____________ is the difference between an observed value of the response variable y and the predicted value of y. Residual
True or false: If the residual is​ positive, then the observed value is greater than the predicted value. True
The​ _______, R2​, measures the proportion of total variation in the response variable that is explained by the least squares regression line. coefficient of determination
A __________________ is a frequency or relative frequency distribution of either the row or column variable in a contingency table. marginal distribution
A ___________________ lists the relative frequency of each category of the response​ variable, given a specific value of the explanatory variable in a contingency table. conditional distribution
A straight line that represents how the response variable changes as the explanatory variable changes. Regression Line
