Q:

Teams with varying numbers of players are playing a group card game. The time taken by each team to complete one game is given in the table. What is the relationship between the two variables? Number of Players on the Team Time Taken to Complete Game (in minutes) 1 32 2 26 3 20 4 14 5 8 positive linear association exponential relationship negative linear association no relationship

Accepted Solution

A:
I suppose the data table is organized as follows:
1         2          3         4          5
32       26        20       14        8
and we see that more the number of members in the team 
increase, the more the times decrease. 

We conclude that the correlation is negative linear association. 
Draw the graph and we get a linear line, hence the linearity o fetch relation.
