In bivariate data, we sometimes notice that one of the quantities increases (1, 2, 3...) while the other quantity decreases (20, 19, 18...). Which phrase best describes this association? would it be no correlation, a perfect correlation,a positive correlation or a negative correlation?

Step 1
The direction of the relationship of correlation can be a positive relationship or a negative relationship. If there is tendency for two variables to change in the same direction, as one variable increases, the other variable also tends to increase and vice versa then it is a positive relationship. If there is a tendency for two variables to change in opposite direction, increase in one variable tend to be accompanied by decrease in the other then it is called as a negative relationship.
A correlation or correlation coefficient is a numerical value that measures and describes the relationship between two variables. The sign of correlation (+/-) indicates the direction of the relationship. "+" indicates a positive correlation and "-" indicates a negative correlation. The numerical value of the relation (from 0 to 1) indicates the strength of the relationship. The type of correlation indicates the form of the relationship.
Step 2
Here, one variable increases, and the other variable decreases.
From the above said points, there is a negative correlation between the variables.

Confidence interval when both μ and σ2 are unknown
I have the following problem in my problem book:
Let XN(μ,σ2) where both μ and σ2 are unknown. I have to find a confidence interval for the mean.
What I have so far:
I know that when σ2 is unknown I can use t-distribution for finding a confidence interval, i.e.:
x±tn1sn,
where tn1 is a t-distribution with n1 degrees of freedom and x is the sample mean from a sample of size n.
The whole problem seems kind of vague to me. Is this enough for describing the confidence interval? I don't know the sample mean x so is it okay to describe the solution in such a way?
