- If two variables, x and y, have a very strong linear relationship, then:
- The rank correlation coefficient of a debating contest involving 10 participants was calculated as 0.6. However, it was later discovered that the difference in the ranks of some participants was read as 8 instead of 3. Find the correct correlation coefficient:
- The Correlation coefficient between two variables is the………………..of their regression coefficients.
- If the coefficient of determination is equal to 1, then the correlation coefficient :
- Relationship between correlation coefficient and coefficient of determination is that:
- Relationship between correlation coefficient and coefficient of determination is that
- In a bivariate sample, the sum of squares of differences between marks of observed values of two variables is 33 and the rank correlation between them is 0.8. Find the number of pairs of observations:
- The strength (degree) of the correlation between a set of independent variables X and a dependent variable Y is measured by
- The strength (degree) of the correlation between a set of independent variables X and a dependent variable Y is measured by
- If the sum of squares of the rank differences of 10 pairs of values is 30, find the correlation coefficient between them.
