I have been posed this challenge by my math teacher, and after thinking about it for a bit I have become quite stumped:

- Create a program that will generate a certain number of points that will obtain a particular
*r*value when linear regression is run on those points.

It would have the following inputs:

- x range
- y range
- number of elements/points
- the desired
*r*value

and the following outputs:

- x list
- corresponding y list

Thus when linear regression is run on the points formed by the outputted x and y lists, the desired *r* value is made. Does anyone know of a method to complete this?
