# Which of these correlation numbers shows the strongest relationship?

Sep 25, 2017

See below

#### Explanation:

I would say $- 0.68$, but still $- 0.68$ does not indicate a strong correlation.
Keep in mind that any numbers that are between -0.5 and -0.7 show weak negative correlation only, same for positive.

The other numbers given in the question indicate very weak correlation.

See my table below.

The size of $r$ indicates the strength of the correlation.

I hope this helps.
