# True or False? In Exercises 25-30, determine whether the statement is true or false. If it is false, explain why or give an example that shows it is false.Data that are modeled by y   =   3.29 x   −   4.17 have a negative correlation.

To determine

Whether the statement, “Data that is modelled by the given 2- dimensional function y=3.29x4.17 have a negative correlation” is true or false.

Explanation

Given Information:

The direction of correlation is determined by whether the correlation is negative or positive. In negative correlation as variable will increase, the other should decrease consider a function that is having modelling data

y=ax+b

Now, consider a point (x1,y1) on the function. And according to negative correlation (x1+Δx,y1Δy), should satisfy Δx,Δy0

Now, consider the function modelling data at (0,4.17) and Δx=1, so Δx>0

y=3
