# If for a bivariate data byx = – 1.2 and bxy = – 0.3 then find r. - Mathematics and Statistics

Sum

If for a bivariate data byx = – 1.2 and bxy = – 0.3 then find r.

#### Solution

Given, byx = – 1.2 and bxy = – 0.3

∴ r = +-sqrt("b"_"XY" * "b"_"YX")

= +- sqrt((- 1.2)(- 0.3)) +- sqrt0.36 = +- 0.6

Since bXY and bYX both are negative,

r is negative.

∴ r = - 0.6
