    2. What information is provided by the numerical value of the Pearson correlation?

    (The sample correlation coefficient, usually denoted r, is a numerical measure of the strength and the direction of the sample linear relationship between two variables. The value of r is always a number from -1to1. If r is positive, then the sample data indicate a positive linear relationship between the two variables; if r is negative, then the sample data indicate a negative linear relationship between the two variables. The closer that r is to the extreme values -1and1, the stronger the linear relationship indicated by the sample data. When r=0, the sample data indicate no linear relationship between the two variables).

    3 5
    2 1
    2 3

    b. Compute the Pearson correlation.

    14.I identifying individuals with a high risk of Alzheimer's disease usually involve a long series of cognitive tests. However, researchers have developed a 7 minute screen which is a quick and easy way to accomplish the same goal. The question is whether the 7 minute screen is as effective as the complete series of tests. To address this question, Ijuin et al. (2008). Administered both tests to a group of patient and compared the results. The following data and compared the results. The following data represent results similar to those obtained in the study.

    Weight (X) Income (Y)
