Which of these shows the strongest correlation? ## Answers (1) 2020-11-08
A linear relationship can be best described by a straight line. In the scatterplot, if a straight line is drawn, all the data points lie on the straight line or around the straight line.
As compare to other scatterplots, scatterplot 3 indicates that most of the data points form a straight line or lies close to the straight line, hence this scatterplot represents the strongest linear correlation. ### Relevant Questions asked 2021-01-08
