Exercise: Head circumference and height, answer 2

Question 2: How would you describe the strength of this relationship?

Suggested answer

This is a positive relationship, as students with larger height tend to have large head circumference. People of the same height have a lot of variation in head circumference, so the relationship is not strong. It could be described as being of weak to moderate strength.
