# Scatter Diagram Characteristics

A graph that shows the pattern of the relation of two variables is a scatter diagram. How would you define or describe a scatter diagram? When making a scatter diagram, the lowest value on the horizontal axis us usually what value? The overall shape of a scatter diagram should be roughly square. What is the difference between a positive correlation and a negative correlation? If the dots on a scatter diagram seem to form a straight line that goes upward to the right, what is this situation called?
