The association is positive, when the pattern in the scatterplot slopes upwards and thus when one variable increases as the other increases.
The association is negative, when the pattern in the scatterplot slopes downwards and thus when one variable decreased as the other increases.
There is no association, when the pattern in the scatterplot does not slope upwards nor downwards and thus when one variable increases, the other variable is unaffected.
As the outdoor temperature increases, we expect the number of layers of clothing to decrense as the warmer it is, the less clothes you tend to wear.
This then implies that there is most likely a negative association between these two variables.

Unusual points Each of the four scatterplots that follow shows a cluster of points and one “stray” point. For each, answer these questions:
1) In what way is the point unusual? Does it have high leverage, a large residual, or both?
2) Do you think that point is an influential point?
3) If that point were removed, would the correlation be- come stronger or weaker? Explain.
4) If that point were removed, would the slope of the re- gression line increase or decrease? Explain

Tom is creating a scatterplot that depicts the perimeter and area of a square. (If s is the length of a side of a square, the perimeter is 4s and the area is s2). He sets up these coordinates in which the explanatory variable is the perimeter and the response variable is the area. (10, u) (12, v) (20, w) (24, x) (36, y) (z, 49) a. Find the values of u, v, w, x, y, and z. b. If the points are put on a scatterplot, do they depict a positive or negative correlation?

Using the health records of ever student at a high school, the school nurse created a scatterplot relating y= height (in centimeters) to x= age (in years).
After verifying that the conditions for the regression model were met, the nurse calculated the equation of the population regression line to be μ0=105 + 4.2x with σ=7 cm. About what percent of 15-year-old students at this school are taller than 180 cm?
