Homework Help: Statistics, multiple choice, correlation coefficient

  1. Jun 22, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    The correlation coefficient for each of two data sets is calculated. Set A has r = -0.75 while Set B has r = +0.55. Which set (A or B) has the stronger strength of relationship?

    2. Relevant equations I think -0.75?

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I think Set A r = -.75 is stronger because it is closer to -1
