(a) Give examples of two variables that have a strong positive linear correlation and two variables that have strong negative linear correlation.

(b) Explain in your own words why the linear correlation coefficient should not be used when its absolute value is too low or close to zero. Give an example.

(c) In the passage below identify the explanatory variable and the response variable. Explain why.

A nutritionist wants to determine if the amounts of water consumed each day by persons of the same weight and on the same diet can be used to predict individual weight loss.

(a) A strong positive linear correlation is observed when one variable increases as the increase in another variable happens linearly.

The variables rate of smoking and alcohol use shows a strong positive linear correlation. As the alcohol use increases, the rate of smoking also increases.

A strong negative linear correlation is observed when one variable increase but the decrease in another variable happens linearly.

The variables amount of playing games each week and GPA of students are strongly negative linear correlation because the more amount students spent in playing games each week, the GPA’s decreases.

(b) When the absolute value of the linear correlation coefficient is too low or close to zero, it shouldn’t be used. It indicates that there is no correlation between the variables, there is no relationship, interdependence, or connection between the variables.

It shows that the variables have nothing to do with each other and use of such variables makes no sense.

The variables, the amount of tea drunk and level of intelligence shows zero correlation.

(c) Explanatory or independent variable: Amount of water consumed each day because it is not depending on any other factor or variable.

Response or dependent variable: Weight loss because the variable weight loss is depending on the amount of water consumed each day.

Which characteristic of a data set makes a linear regression model unreasonable?

Find the meaning of 'Sxx' and 'Sxy' in simple linear regression

In the least-squares regression line, the desired sum of the errors (residuals) should be

a) zero

b) positive

c) 1

d) negative

e) maximizedCan the original function be derived from its ${k}^{th}$ order Taylor polynomial?

Should the independent (or dependent) variables in a linear regression model be normal or just the residual?

What is the relationship between the correlation of two variables and their covariance?

What kind of technique is to be adopted if I have to find an equation or model for say, $D$ depends on $C$, $C$ changes for a set of $B$, which changes for different $A$.

Correlation bound

Let x and y be two random variables such that:

Corr(x,y) = b, where Corr(x,y) represents correlation between x and y, b is a scalar number in range of [-1, 1]. Let y' be an estimation of y. An example could be y'=y+(rand(0,1)-0.5)*.1, rand(0,1) gives random number between 0, 1. I am adding some noise to the data.

My questions are:

Is there a way where I can bound the correlation between x, y' i.e. Corr(x,y')?I mentioned y' in light of random perturbation, I would like to know what if I don't have that information, where I only know that y' is a estimation of y. Are there any literature that cover it?What is the benefit of OU vs regression for modeling data, say data in the form of ($x,y$) pairs?

Can you determine the correlation coefficient from the coefficient of determination?

How can one find the root of sesquilinear form with positive definite matrix?

From numerical simulation and regression analysis I discovered that the root-mean-square amplitude of white noise with bandwidth $\mathrm{\Delta}\phantom{\rule{negativethinmathspace}{0ex}}f$ is proportional to $\sqrt{\phantom{\rule{negativethinmathspace}{0ex}}\mathrm{\Delta}\phantom{\rule{negativethinmathspace}{0ex}}f}$. How can this be derived mathematically ?

In a Simple Linear Regression analysis, independent variable is weekly income and dependent variable is weekly consumption expenditure. Here $95$% confidence interval of regression coefficient, ${\beta}_{1}$ is $(.4268,.5914)$.
