# Correlation, Prediction, Coefficients

Not what you're looking for?

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 ...
