    What is the effect of coding data on the values of Sxx, Sxy and Syy. I realise r just remains the same. This is for statistics S1

    You're not getting much response - so I'll take a stab at this.

    If you add a fixed amount to either the x or y values you will not affect any of Sxx Sxy or Syy because they all subtract the mean.

    If you multiply the x values by say 2 you will quadruple the Sxx value, double the Sxy value and not change the Syy value.

    So it's like variance then; in saying that Var(2X+5)=22Var(X) in the case of Sxx and then for Sxy it's like standard deviation (presumably because the x value isn't squared in an Sxy calculation).

    Thanks for responding

    Yes, exactly the same, make sure you square it as you've said
