I really understand most of the question, just having trouble with one part, so I am going to try to sum it up. if you need more info to clarify please let me know...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

background...

nielson media research provides two measures of television viewing audience (in this case for the world series):

-a television program RATING, which is the percentage of households with televisions watching a program

and

-a television program SHARE, which is the percentage of households watching a program among those with televisions in use

following data....

rating: 19, 17, 17, 14, 16, 12, 15, 12, 13,

share: 32, 28, 29, 24, 26, 20, 24, 20, 22,

please note... the rating and share correspond to eacher, so 19 corresponds to 32, 17 corresponds to 28, etc and they want rating to be on the horizontal axis when a scatter plot is made ... so (19, 32) (17, 28) etc etc

the question is... what is the relationship between rating and share?? explain

i am stuck. i mean i can GRAPH a relationship. sure. what i know is rating is the percent of houses with a tv watching the world series, and the share is the percent of people with the tv on watching the game. somehow i feel like there should be some kind of subtraction? share minus rating? i really dont know. any help would be great!!! thanks :D :D
