# 2. What does the numerical value of the correlation coefficient (`r=-0.83`) tell you about the relationship between the number of bacteria colonies and the concentration of antibiotic in the dish?

1. The sign tells us that we have a negative correlation. It means that an increase in one variable will cause a decrease in the other variable. This means that as the concentration of antibiotic in the dish decreases, the number of bacteria colonies increase.
2. The numerical value tells us that there is a strong negative correlation between the variables. It tells us that the correlation between the number of bacteria colonies and the concentration of antibiotic in the dish is almost perfect. perfect negative correlation means the relationship that exists between two variables is exactly opposite all of the time and is close to -1.
