Step 1
If we suspect linear relationship between two variables, then for a given set of data, we can evaluate the value of Pearson correlation coefficient without having any assumption. And we can have a sense of with what intensity the variables are linearly related.
Step 2
But if we would like to test the significance of a given correlation value for a set of observations, and we would like to infer whether the data really gives sufficient evidence in favor of significant correlation or linear relationhip between considered variables, then for the construction of test statistics, assumption of normality is necessary.

The manager of the store in the preceding exercise calculated the residual for each point in the scatterplot and made a dotplot of the residuals.

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=7cm.
About what percent of 15-year-old students at this school are taller than 180 cm?
