## Plot 1

Give the mean of x and y, standard deviation of x and y, correlation between x and y, and the equation of the LSRL.

## Plot 2

Give the mean of x and y, standard deviation of x and y, correlation between x and y, and the equation of the LSRL.

## Plot 3

Give the mean of x and y, standard deviation of x and y, correlation between x and y, and the equation of the LSRL.

## Plot 4

## Conclusions

What do you notice about the means and standard deviations of x and y for the data sets given in each plot?

What do you notice about the correlations and equations of the LSRL for the data sets given in each plot?

What do you notice about the graphs for the data sets given in each plot?

How would you respond to a classmate who says that summary statistics and the equation of the LSRL is enough to describe a bivariate set of data? What suggestions would you give to that person the next time he or she encounters a bivariate set of data?
