a. What does the strength of the relationship mean?
b. What does the direction of the relationship mean (define positive correlation and negative correlation)?
c. Interpret the findings of the research presented.

a. how close the value is to ± 1, which indicates perfect predictability and farther from 0, which indicates no predictability.
