    Hello everyone,
    So i came across a little bit of basic maths in a past paper i was doing, and one of the questions was about a scatter graph showing length and height of sheep.
    It asks you to fill in two more points on the graph from some extra data they give you... and then they ask you to 'Describe the relationship between the height and length of these sheep'. (From the graph which shows that height increases with length.) Now, I've never gotten this type of question wrong before in my paper, but what would be the best way to write it in an exam paper? I usually just write it in every possible way because im not sure of the 'proper' way to write it.

    Apologies for my long post about something little lol

    I would assume that it would be a positive correlation between the length and height of sheep meaning that as height of sheep increases, generally the length of the sheep increases.
