# Determining Correlation In Exercises 19-24, plot the points and determine whether the data have positive, negative, or no linear correlation (see figures below). Then use a graphing utility to find the value of r and confirm your result. The number r is called the correlation coefficient. It is a measure of how well the model fits the data. Correlation coefficients vary between -1 and 1, and the closer |r| is to 1, the better the model.(1,3), (2, 6), (3, 2), (4, 3), (5, 9), (6, 1) To determine

To graph: The points (1,3),(2,6),(3,2),(4,3),(5,9),(6,1) and determine whether these points have positive, negative or no linear correlation. Also determine the correlation coefficient using graphing utility.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided points are (1,3),(2,6),(3,2),(4,3),(5,9),(6,1).

Graph:

Consider the provided points,

(1,3),(2,6),(3,2),(4,3),(5,9),(6,1)

Label these points on coordinate axis and connect them with a straight line as shown below,
