Problem 5BSC

Scatterplots. In Exercises 5–8, use the given paired data from Appendix B to construct a scatterplot.

President's Heights Refer to Data Set 12 in Appendix B, and use the heights of U.S. presidents and the heights of their main opponents in the election campaign. Does there appear to be a correlation?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 1 :

The heights of U.S. presidents and the heights of their main opponents in the election campaign.

The data is given below.

 President's Height (cm) Height Opp (cm) 188 170 189 189 170 163 183 171 191 185 171 168 180 173 168 173 185 173 174 178 196 183 175 193 188 173 173 178 183 187 180 180 168 180 170 178 178 175 182 178 180 182 183 178 178 180 182 180 188 182 175 173 179 178 183 182 192 180 182 180 177 183 185 177 188 173 188 188 183 185 188 175

Now we have to draw a scatter plot.

Then the scatter plot is given below.

Because the points are scattered throughout with no obvious pattern, there does not appear to be a correlation.
