Use the scatter plot of the height and reading level of Ms. Banks' students for questions 3 through 5.
3. What types of associations describe the relation between height and reading level?

• negative, linear
• negative, nonlinear
• positive, linear
• positive, nonlinear
4. Ms. Banks concludes that an increase in reading level causes an increase in height. Is her conclusion reasonable?
• Yes, the points cluster along a line.
• Yes, as reading level increases, the height increases.
• No, an increase in height causes an increase in reading level.
• No, association does not mean a cause-and-effect relationship.
5. Add a point that is an outlier to the graph.

1. positive, linear
2. positive, linear
3. No, association does not mean a cause-and-effect relationship.
