Is it:

PMCC = (Sxy)/(Sxx * Syy)

PMCC = (Sxy)/(Sxx * Syy)
I have attatched the definitions of Sxy, Sxx, Syy

4. PMCC (r) = Sxy
-----------------------------------
Square root SxxSyy

So thats Sxy divided by the square root of (Sxx)(Syy)

Hope this is ok.

you have to square root SxxSyy and then divide Sxy by that answer.

yeh that is it n remember sxy = sum of xy - (sum of x)(sum of y)
------------------
n

sxx = sum of x^2 - (sum of x)^2
-------------
n

syy = sum of y^2 - (sum of y)^2
------------
n
7. Well I havent got a clue about maths but i did a web search it looks like a useful site anyway
