Which statement below is consistent conceptually with what a computed Pearsons r value represents?

 The Pearson's r value represents the degree to which X and Y scores vary separately relative to how much X and Y scores covary together. The Pearson's r value represents the degree to which X and Y scores covary together relative to how much X and Y scores vary separately. The Pearson's r value represents the degree to which between groups variability exists, relative to within groups variability. The Pearson's r value represents the degree to which within groups variability exists, relative to between groups variability.

The Pearson's r value represents the degree to which X and Y scores covary together relative to how much X and Y scores vary separately.

The formula for Pearson's correlation coefficient is:

or equivalently

It is the degree to which X and Y covary together (Sxy) relative to how much they vary separately (Sxx and Syy)
