Covariance in Calculator
Covariance, a statistical measure of association, quantifies the linear relationship between two variables.
 Calculates linear association
 Positive covariance: variables move together
 Negative covariance: variables move oppositely
 Zero covariance: no linear relationship
 Indicates strength and direction of relationship
 Used in correlation analysis and regression modeling
 Available in scientific calculators and statistical software
 Input data pairs and select covariance function
Covariance helps understand the behavior of variables and make predictions.
Calculates linear association
Covariance in a calculator determines the extent to which two variables change together in a linear fashion.

Linear relationship:
Covariance measures the strength and direction of the linear association between two variables. A linear relationship means that as one variable increases, the other variable either consistently increases or decreases.

Positive covariance:
When two variables move in the same direction, they have a positive covariance. For example, as the temperature increases, the number of ice cream sales also increases. This indicates a positive linear relationship.

Negative covariance:
When two variables move in opposite directions, they have a negative covariance. For instance, as the price of a product increases, the demand for that product decreases. This shows a negative linear relationship.

Zero covariance:
If there is no linear relationship between two variables, their covariance will be zero. This means that the changes in one variable do not consistently affect the changes in the other variable.
Covariance helps us understand the behavior of variables and make predictions. For example, if two variables have a strong positive covariance, we can expect that if one variable increases, the other variable will also likely increase.
