 Question 611131: - If the correlation coefficient is 0.97, what is the sign of the slope of the regression line? - As the correlation coefficient increases from -0.78 to -0.74, do the points of the scatter plot move toward the regression line, or away from it?Found 2 solutions by stanbon, ewatrrr:Answer by stanbon(57347)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!If the correlation coefficient is 0.97, what is the sign of the slope of the regression line? --- Ans: positive ============================ - As the correlation coefficient increases from -0.78 to -0.74, do the points of the scatter plot move toward the regression line, or away from it? ---- Ans: The set of points would be less linear. They would move away from the regression line. ============== Cheers, Stan H.

Note: |-.74| < |-.78|, the lesser the correlation, the more the scatter ```
