The mean credit balance of the customers is $3964.06. The standard deviation is approximately 933.49. The credit balance of the customers is a normal distribution that has a peak and a bell shaped distribution between $4000 - $4500. Therefore, the majority of customers have a credit balance within this range.

There is no definite relationship or association between the two variables, no specific pattern is present. There is no correlation among the variables Income and Size.

The relationship between the variables Income and Credit Balance is illustrated as follows:

There is a clear and definite relationship between the two variables. The variables Income and Credit Balance exhibit a linear positive relationship/correlation. As is evident, the higher the income the higher the credit balance and vice versa.

The relationship between the variables Years and Credit is below:

These two variables do not show any clear relationship. The points do not exhibit any specific pattern. There is correlation among these variables.
