The independent variable is the actual year, that will not change. The dependent variable are what years we guessed as individuals
If we had guessed all of the years correct, it would just look like a single set of data

The explanatory variable is the percentage of workers in unions, since strikes have very strong correlation with union support.
The graph shows strong positive correlation between the sets of data
the scatterplot locates how many strikes there were in accordanance with the percentage values given.
the variables are associated because of the trendline

The data helps interperate how much money a Governor makes compared to others
There is weak positive correlation, because the data points are all over but in general the salery increases based on the states average income

there is even less association when we see all of the states because the data oints are very scattered like a blob.
the most outstanding variables are those furthest away from the bulk of the data, usually called an outlier.
