    First lets undersatnd what the word correlation means. It means: Correlation refers to the degree of correspondence or relationship between two variables. Correlated variables tend to change together. If one variable gets larger, the other one systematically becomes either larger or smaller

    Now a classic example of a positive correlation can be seen, in the number of icreams sales in the summer. When the tempertature goes up, icream sales go up.

    For a negative correlation: Think of temperature again, As the termrapture goes down, sales of hot choclate go up. Notice the up and down kind of theme here

    Now can you guess what no correlation is all about?

    Well, cookies can eaten all the time, so its dosent matter if its hot or cold outside(temp rises, temp lowers). So there is no correlations between temperature and cookies
