Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A random distribution of points. The correlation coefficient will be close to one when it is closer to being a straight line.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this is mainly a statistics question reguarding the correlation coefficient.... so you could have asked this in the math section.... a correlatation coefficient close to 1 or 1 means there is a linear relationship betweeen x and y... if it is closer to 0, then there is no linear relationship between x, y (but that does not mean there is no relationship)....
