"Scatter plots" are used to measure relationships.

For example, to measure the relationship between athelete salary and win ratio, we can plot a dot for each team in a league. We expect a "positive correlation", which means the teams that spend more should win more.

Another example, to measure the relationship between the size of a car and fuel efficiency. We expect a "negative correlation", meaning as the car gets larger, the fuel efficiency declines.
