Heights and mid-parent heights are given for 18 college students. Draw a scatterplot for the data, using different symbols for males and females as instructed in part (b). Based on the scatterplot, would you say that the correlation between height and mid-parent height is higher for the females in the sample or for the males? Or are the correlation values about the same for males and females?

Here is the scatterplot of the given data:
