I get that Syy rises, but why doesn't Sxy rise if y rises?

(only need a hand on the last part of each question)

Because if the change in y is negated by the change in and hence this means that the term in the summation doesn't really change when summed over, and hence doesn't change.

But Syy increases so surely the change in y is not negated by the change is y bar

for the new name, x-xbar is 0, meaning Sxy doesn't change because when multiplying x-xbar by y-ybar for the new name, you get zero so the overall sum remains unchanged

Ohhh now I understand, thanks!

Would you mind giving me a hand on the first picture I posted in the first post of this thread? (I only need help on the last part of that question) (the tomato one)
