Directions: Using the integers 0-9 (without repeating any number), create a set of points that have the following characteristics:

Non-linear Positive Correlation

(__,__) (__,__) (__,__) (__,__) (__,__)

Non-linear Negative Correlation

(__,__) (__,__) (__,__) (__,__) (__,__)

No Correlation

(__,__) (__,__) (__,__) (__,__) (__,__)

Hint

Hint

What does it mean to have correlation? What are the characteristics of those correlations?

Answer

Answer

There are many possible solution combinations. Here is an example of each.
Non-linear Positive Correlation: (0,4) (1,6) (2,8) (3,7) (5,9)
Non-linear Negative Correlation: (0,9) (1,7) (2,8) (3,5) (6,4)
No Correlation: (0,5) (1,2) (3,9) (4,8) (7,6)
