Scatter diagrams

1.) If the points on a scatter diagram lie approximately on a straight line, there is
a linear relationship between them. They are associated.

Correlation

2.) Correlation is a measure of the strength of the linear association between
two variables.

3.) Negative correlation is when one variable decreases…

Nonlinear models

16.) The graphs of nonlinear models are in the form of y=axn + b

Spearman's rank correlation coefficient

17.) Spearman's rank correlation coefficient is a numerical measure of the
agreement of the correlation between two sets of data. It tells us how close the
agreement is.

18.) Spearman's…
