 Question 415800: For the table that follows, answer the following questions: x ... y 1 ... 1/3 2 ... 2/3 3 ... 1 4 A. Would the correlation between x and y in the table above be positive or negative? B. Find the missing value of y in the table. C. How would the values of this table be interpreted in terms of linear regression? D. If a "line of best fit" is placed among these points plotted on a coordinate system, would the slope of this line be positive or negative? Please show your steps so I can figure out how to do this stuff. Thank you so much for your help.Answer by ewatrrr(10682)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! ``` Hi x ... y 1 ... 1/3 1/3 = k*1 k = 1/3 2 ... 2/3 3 ... 1 4 ....4/3 A. Would the correlation between x and y in the table above be positive or negative? y = 1/3x Positive correlation B. Find the missing value of y in the table. 4/3 C. How would the values of this table be interpreted in terms of linear regression? values of this table used as ordered pairs(x,y) would be collinear. D. If a "line of best fit" is placed among these points plotted on a coordinate system, would the slope of this line be positive or negative? positive ```
