Correlation coeffecient
r (amount of correlation between two variables)
7 of 14
The closer to the value of 1 of r...
the stronger the (positive) correlation
8 of 14
The closer to the value of 0 of r...
the weaker the correlation
9 of 14
The closer to the value of -1 of r...
the stronger the (negative) correlation
10 of 14
Does coding (adding to x or dividing the result) affect r?
No. Subtracting from x only moves the x axis and dividing only changes the scale.

First find a and c (the subrtraced number)...
...then find b and d (the divisor) which is he number which is a common divisor of the numbers left after the divisor
