The perimeter of the square is four times the side of the square and thus the date is positively correlated (since four is positive).

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 s^2). 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?

Sheila is in Ms. Cai's class . She noticed that the graph of the perimeter for the "dented square" in problem 3-61 was a line . "I wonder what the graph of its area looks like ," she said to her teammates .
a. Write an equation for the area of the "dented square" if xx represents the length of the large square and yy represents the area of the square.
b. On graph paper , graph the rule you found for the area in part (a). Why does a 1st−quadrant graph make sense for this situation? Are there other values of xx that cannot work in this situation? Be sure to include an indication of this on your graph, as necessary.
c. Explain to Sheila what the graph of the area looks like.
d. Use the graph to approximate xx when the area of the shape is 20 square units.
