What did the scatter plot look like? a line with a positive slope a random distribution of points a line with a negative slope a straight line from the lower left to the upper right-hand corner

    A random distribution of points. The correlation coefficient will be close to one when it is closer to being a straight line.

    this is mainly a statistics question reguarding the correlation coefficient.... so you could have asked this in the math section.... a correlatation coefficient close to 1 or -1 means there is a linear relationship betweeen x and y... if it is closer to 0, then there is no linear relationship between x, y (but that does not mean there is no relationship)....
