  • Card 6 / 8:
    Explain what it means when a correlation has an r 2 of 0.72.

    It means that 72% of the variation in the dependent variable ( y ) can be explained by the variation in the independent variable ( x ).

what's poissan distribution?
Abdulhakim
It's Poisson. It's a discrete probability distribution that is used to find the probability of an event x happening within a fixed interval of time. E. g. If a shop sells an average of 5 goods on Saturdays, what is the probability that the shop will sell 7 goods on a particular Saturday.

Correlation regression, explain it to me in short.

correlation is used to find relationship between two and dependent ), regression used for predicting the future by analyzing past data

correlation is used to find relationship between two variables

dependent and independent eg. profit is dependent on sales

Statistics has been designed as the mathematical science of making decisions and drawing conclusions from data in situations of uncertainty. It includes the designings of experiments, collection, organization, summarization snd interpretation of numerical data.

excellent Aliya..... good...Arun....

The degree or strength of relationship(interdependence) between the variables is called "correlation ". Examples: heights and weights of children, ages of husbands and ages of wives at the time of their marriages, marks of students in mathematics and in statistics.
Aliya
The dependence of one variable (dependent variable) one one or more independent variables ( independent variables) is called "regression ".
Aliya
simply regression and multiple regression are the types of regression.

Does standard deviation have measuring unit?
Mohamed
yes, the measuring unit of the data you are looking at, for example centimetres for height.
Emma
thanks
Mohamed
is that easy to plot a graph between three axis?
Mohamed
yes we can but we do not have that much effective tools. If the graph is normal or less complicated then it is plotted effectively otherwise it will give you nightmare.

whats the difference between discrete and contineous data
umar
Discrete variables are variables that can assume finite number of values. Continuous variables are variables that can assume infinite number of values
Mike
i will give you an example: {0,4,84} it contains discrete or limited values like it can also contain boolean values{true,false} or {0,1} and continuous are like {1,2,3,4,5......} , {0,0.1,0.2,0.3,0.4...........}
umair
a no. of values which are countable are called discrete variables on the other hand, a no. of values which are not countable are called continuous variables
Aliya
Yup, I would like to support Mr.Umair's argument by saying that it can only apply if we have a 3-D graph,otherwise a plane graph will not apply at all

what is covariance

In probability theory and statistics, covariance is a measure of the joint variability of two random variables.[1] If the greater values of one variable mainly correspond with the greater values of the other variable, and the same holds for the lesser values, (i.e., the variables tend to show simila
