# What is Covariation?

###### Author

Hey, guys! Today, we’re going to talk about covariation. π€

So, what is covariation? π€

Well, covariation is the tendency for values of two or more variables to change together. π For example, when you practice basketball every day, you’ll likely see an increase in your shooting percentage. That’s covariation! ππ

When variables covary, we can use that information to predict future outcomes. π€ If we know that two variables tend to change together, we can use that information to make informed decisions. This reduces uncertainty and helps us plan ahead. ππ‘

• Let’s say we want to predict a student’s grades based on the number of hours they study per week. By exploring the covariation between these two variables, we can create a graph that shows the relationship between the two. ππ Then, we can use that graph to predict a student’s grades based on the number of hours they study. π€

Exploring covariation is like making a map of the relationship between two variables. πΊοΈ Once we have that map, we can use it to predict future outcomes and reduce uncertainty. π€

So, next time you’re playing sports or studying for a test, consider covariation and how it can help you make better decisions. π€π
