Correlation Coefficient
Which of the following correlation coefficient indicates the weakest relationship between two variables?
A. + 1.0 B. +0.4 C. 0.6 D. 1.0 As the answer according to book is B. + 0.4 because( The nearer to 0 the correlation coefficient the less correlation between the variables). My question Isnt 0.6 also nearer to zero am confused in between these two values + 0.4 and  0.6. Reply

hÃ, SALAAM
+0.4 is more nearer to 0 than 0.6. +0.4 is just 0.4 away from 0 whereas 0.6 is 0.6 away from 0. I hope you understood.
