Part A: Yes, there should be a strong negative correlation between number of hours of internet browsing and score on math test. Justification: By calculating the correlation coefficient it is about -1. This means there is a strong negative correlation. Part B:y=-2x+95 Part C: The slope indicates that scores on a math test decrease by two for every hour internet browsing. The y-intercept indicates the score you have when browsing 0 hours on the internet.
