pregnant, WTGN is how much weight the mother gained during pregnancy, SMK is how many

cigarettes a day the mother smoked during pregnancy, and PRN is how far into the pregnancy the

mother was when she began receiving prenatal care. Here is a correlation matrix of the correlations

between pairs of variables Use this matrix to answer the following question.

WT 1.000

MWT 0.674 1.000

SMK -0.962 -0.947 1.000

WTGN 0.239 0.258 -0.442 1.000
