###### Answer: NOT The dependent variable is the input variable and should be represented by the x-axis.
Which statement is correct when a scatterplot is constructed?

A scatter plot (also called a scatterplot scatter graph scatter chart scattergram or scatter diagram) is a type of plot or mathematical diagram using Cartesian coordinates to display values for typically two variables for a set of data. If the points are coded (color/shape/size) one additional variable can be displayed. The data are displayed as a collection of points each having the value of one variable determining the position on the horizontal axis and the value of the other variable determining the position on the vertica…

English: Bertrand's paradox — distribution of midpoints of chords chosen at random solution 3 Based on en:Image:Bertrand3- scatterplot .jpeg by Robert Dodier (en:User:Wile E. Heresiarch) and generated in en:Adobe Illustrator and en:Chipmunk Basic using 10 000 random chords. In this solution the chords are constructed from midpoints uniformly distributed over the area of the circle.
