    An experiment was done to see if there was any correlation between the volume of water in a fish tank and the average length to which goldfish grew when they were hatched and raised in that tank. Here are the results. Draw a scattergram and compute r.

    Fish Tank Volume, in Gallons Average Length of Fish, in Inches
    0.5 1.8
    1 2.1
    2 2.2
    4 2.9
    5 3.3

    Scattergrams

    The simplest thing we can do with two variables that we believe
    are related is to draw a scattergram. A scattergram is a simple
    graph that plots values of our dependent variable Y and independent
    variable X. Normally we plot our dependent variable on the vertical axis and
    the independent variable on the horizontal axis.

    Just from our scattergram, we can sometimes get a fairly good idea
    of the ...
