In baseball, is there a linear correlation between batting average and home run percentage? Let x represent the batting average of a professional baseball player. Let y represent the home run percentage (number of home runs per 100 times at bat). Suppose a random sample of baseball players gave the following information. Given the scatter diagram and "best fit" line for the data below, would you say the correlation is low, moderate, or strong? Positive or negative

    "Following information" not given. Copy and paste might not be working, so you will have to type the data out.

    The more it approximates a straight line, the stronger the correlation.

    If it goes from lower left to upper right, it is positive. If it goes from upper left to lower right, it is negative.
