## Solution

1 .yes ,sign of slope is always same as sign of co
elation coefficient.
As slope b = r Sy/Sx ,as standard deviation always positive,so slope sign depends on co
elation coefficient sign.
Alge
aically,slope measures angle & co
elation measures the relation in different coordinates between y & x .so sign should be same.
The purpose of co
elation coefficient is to check strength of co
elation & sign of co
elation whereas slope says for each unit change in independent variable keeping other independent...
