Scatter Plot and Determining Correlation

In forestry there appears to be a correlation between the diameter of a tree at breast height and the total height of the tree. For the following sample of ten white spruces, first construct a scatter plot then find the correlation (r) between height, r squared, and T.

Diameter(cm) Height
18.9 20.0
15.5 16.8
19.4 20.2
20.0 20.0
29.8 20.2
19.8 18.0
20.3 17.8
20.0 19.2
22.0 22.3
16.6 18.8

Solution Summary
