b. The standard deviations were 0.00782 for team batting average and 0.3604 for team scoring. The correlation between these variables was 0.900. Show how the correlation and slope of 41.5 relate, in terms of these standard deviations.
c. Software reports r2 = 0.81. Explain how to interpret this measure.
