We do not do your work for you. Once you have answered your questions, we will be happy to give you feedback on your work. Although it might require more time and effort, you will learn more if you do your own work. Isn't that why you go to school?

I assume you can find the web calculator.

IQ | 1.0000

Psy | 0.5923 1.0000

Stat | 0.7367 0.7105 1.0000

a. corr(iq, psych) = 0.5923; coeff. of det. = 0.3508.

b. corr(iq, stat) = 0.7367; coeff. of det. = 0.5576.

c. corr(stat, psych) = 0.7105; coeff. of det. = 0.5048.
