S y s t o l i c D i a s t o l i c If the sample data were to result in the scatterplot shown here, what is the value of the linear correlation coefficient r ? ??

Solution 10 CQQ Step 1 : The value of correlation coefficient must lies in between -1 to 1. If the value correlation is -1, then it is negatively correlated, if it is 1 then we can say that positively correlated, if the value is o then there is no correlation.
