Question 4

1.

What does it mean to have a negative coefficient in the regression model?

 [removed] That variable reduces the coefficient of determination. [removed] The values for that variable are negative. [removed] There is an inverse relationship with that variable. [removed] The correlation is weak.

Question 5

1.

Assuming a linear relationship between X and Y, if the coefficient of correlation (r) equals -0.30,

 [removed] there is no correlation. [removed] the slope (b1) is negative. [removed] variable X is larger than variable Y. [removed] the variance of X is negative.

Question 6

1.

If the hypothesis test for correlation is found to be significant (i.e., we rejected the null hypothesis / accepted the alternate hypothesis), what can we automatically conclude about the strength of the correlation?

 [removed] We can conclude that the correlation must be strong. [removed] We can only conclude that the correlation is not weak [removed] We cannot conclude anything about the strength of the correlation yet.
