Car Weight vs. MPG
Mail   Print   Twitter   Facebook

The scatterplot of car's weight vs. their MPG appears to form a linear shape, it is strong, and there are not apparent outliers on the graph. It also appears to have a negative association. Since the correlation (r) equals -.9054, this proves that it is strongly negative. This indicates that the lighter the car is, the higher or better, gas mileage it gets. So, the heavier the car, the worse the gas mileage it is. For example, a car that weighed around two thousand pounds had a MPG of around thirty-one or thirty-two. On the other hand a car that weighed closer to four thousand pounds, the MPG was around fifteen, which is considerably worse than the lighter car.
