# Deliverable 6 – analysis with correlation and regression

**Competency**

Determine and solve the direct mutuality coefficient, and use direct return to furnish a best fit cord for a strew batch of the basis and produce predictions.

**Scenario**

According to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the presumption of a heap 6.7 or superior earthquake in the Superior Bay Area is 63%, encircling 2 out of 3, in the proximate 30 years. In April 2008, scientists and engineers released a new earthquake intercept for the State of California denominated the Uniform California Earthquake Rupture Intercept (UCERF).

As a younger analyst at the USGS, you are tasked to particularize whether there is tit attraction to help the title of a direct mutuality betwixt the heaps and profoundnesss from the earthquakes. Your deliverables get be a PowerPoint endowment you get produce summarizing your furnishings and an excel instrument to likeness your product.

**Concepts Being Studied**

- Correlation and return
- Creating strewplots
- Constructing and solveing a Hypothesis Trial for Mutuality using
*r*as the trial statistic

You are abandoned a spreadsheet that contains the subjoined counsel:

- Magnitude measured on the Richter scale
- Depth in km

Using the spreadsheet, you get vindication the problems under in a PowerPoint endowment.

**What to Submit**

The PowerPoint endowment should vindication and interpret the subjoined questions installed on the spreadsheet granted over.

**Slide 1:**Title slide**Slide 2:**Introduce your scenario and basis set including the unsteadys granted.**Slide 3**: Construct a strewbatch of the two unsteadys granted in the spreadsheet. Involve a title of what you see in the strewplot.**Slide 4:**Furnish the rate of the direct mutuality coefficient*r*and the fastidious rate of*r*using α = 0.05. Involve an interpretation on how you ground those rates.**Slide 5**: Particularize whether there is tit attraction to help the title of a direct mutuality betwixt the heaps and the profoundnesss from the earthquakes. Explain.**Slide 6:**Furnish the return equation. Let the predictor (*x*) unsteady be the heap. Identify the arise and the y-intercept amid your return equation.**Slide 7:**Is the equation a good-natured-natured standard? Explain. What would be the best predicted profoundness of an earthquake after a while a heap of 2.0? Involve the set-right units.**Slide 8:**Conclude by recapping your ideas by summarizing the counsel presented in treatment of the scenario.

Along after a while your PowerPoint endowment, you should involve your Excel instrument which likenesss all calculations.
