Listed below are altitudes (thousands of feet) and outside air temperatures (degrees Fahrenheit) recorded by the author during Delta Flight 1053 from New Orleans to Atlanta. Is there sufficient evidence to conclude that there is a linear correlation between altitude and outside air temperature? Do the results change if the altitudes are reported in meters and the temperatures are converted to the Celsius scale?
Construct a scatterplot, and find the value of the linear correlation coefficient r. Also find the P-value or the critical values of r from Table A-6 using α = 0.05. Determine whether there is sufficient evidence to support a claim of a linear correlation between the two variables.
