Medical professionals can find relationships between variables. The
more you drink alcohol, the less functionality of your liver. The less
carbohydrates a person intakes, the lower their Body Mass Index.
Data can be collected and organized as an ordered pair (x, y). The
data can be analyzed to determine the type and strength of a correlation
and to calculate a regression line in order to make a prediction.
Use the internet to find a data set of ordered pairs. Key terms to search: Free Public Data Sets and Medical Data Sets.
