Actually three correlations...

Here are a few hints:
The Pearson r is the correlation coefficient and is a measure of correlation, which can be positive or negative. The closer the correlation is to 0, the weaker it is. The closer to +1 or 1, the stronger it is. If you have a correlation of +1 or 1, then this is considered a perfect positive or negative correlation.
You have two negative () correlations and one positive (+) correlation. With negative correlations, when one variable goes up (increases), the other goes down (decreases). With positive correlations, the variables go up or down together.
I hope this helps.
