which numbers are correct?

**Q. **Use a calculator to verify that Σx = 130,Σx2 = ,Σy = 147,Σy2 = , and Σxy = 2805. Compute r. (Round your answer to three decimal places.)

r = ** ?**

**Q. **As x increases, does the value of r imply that y should tend to increase or decrease? Explain.

which one is correct?

1. Given our value of r, y should tend to remain constant as x increases.

2.Given our value of r, y should tend to decrease as x increases.

3.Given our value of r, y should tend to increase as x increases.

4.Given our value of r, we cannot draw any conclusions for the behavior of y as x increases.

strong and negative
