# Correlation Table

The following computer printout of a correlation table was obtanied. It show a correlation table dealing with the correlation of annual rainfall and other variables.

PEARSON CORRELATION COEFFICENT/PROB>/R?UNDER HO:RHO=O/N=100

Variable A .7504
.0003

Variable B -.6337
.0060

Variable C .1616
.3554

Variable D -.2113
.1799

1. The best regression equation to predict rainfall would be developed using one of the above variables?

2. What decision would be made concerning variables C? (use the .05 level)

_________ reject Ho

_________+_ Fail to reject Ho

give reason for decision:
