8. The following scatterplot contains twenty observations for two generic variables, “x” and “y”.

Based on this scatterplot, would you classify the relationship between x any y as being Positive, or Negative, or Null? Why?

There is a Negative relationship between “x” and “y”. Clearly “y” tends to decrease as “x” increases (that is, the two variables tend to move in opposite directions). Note: In this scatterplot I changed the value at which the horizontal axis and the vertical axis cross (i.e., the graph’s origin; it is not the “usual” x=0 and y=0), the minimum and maximum values of each axis, and the size of the gaps between tic marks on each axis. Sometimes you see that in real-world applications ... which is why I did it here!
