Question 4

1.      

What does it mean to have a negative coefficient in the regression model?

[removed]

 

That variable reduces the coefficient of determination.

[removed]

 

The values for that variable are negative.

[removed]

 

There is an inverse relationship with that variable.

[removed]

 

The correlation is weak.

Question 5

1.      

Assuming a linear relationship between X and Y, if the coefficient of correlation (r) equals -0.30,

[removed]

 

there is no correlation.

[removed]

 

the slope (b1) is negative.

[removed]

 

variable X is larger than variable Y.

[removed]

 

the variance of X is negative.

Question 6

1.      

If the hypothesis test for correlation is found to be significant (i.e., we rejected the null hypothesis / accepted the alternate hypothesis), what can we automatically conclude about the strength of the correlation?

[removed]

 

We can conclude that the correlation must be strong.

[removed]

 

We can only conclude that the correlation is not weak

[removed]

 

We cannot conclude anything about the strength of the correlation yet.
