What is a real world example of a linear relationship with a positive slope?

### 1 Answer | Add Yours

A positive slope would be a line that goes upwards from left to right. This also represents a positive correlation. As one variable increases, the other increases as well. A real world example would be as the weight of candy increases, the number of calories (or amount of sugar) increases as well.
