## You’ve lost me now. [General Statistics]

Hi ElMaestro,

» Let us go over it again:

» Let x be our sample.

» Let f(x|other shit) be a function of x, given some other shit.

» Let g(x|other shit) be another function of x, given the same other shit.

Like this (or any other

» In general (and ideally layman's) terms, what properties of f and g would lead me to think f and g are independent.

»

» I assume it is implied that we are talking about

Completely confused. Can you try again, please?

Like this (or any other

`funny`

transformation)?`other.shit <- function(x, funny) {`

eval(funny)

}

x <- rnorm(100, mean = 100, sd = 20)

f <- other.shit(x, funny = x^2)

g <- other.shit(x, funny = sqrt(x))

cor(f, g)

plot(f, g, las = 1, xlab = "f(x)", ylab = "g(x)")

» I assume it is implied that we are talking about

*, at least when we try and think of f and g as numerators and denominators of the quantity defining t above. When this is the wrong perception, kindly correct me, please.***independence from each other**Completely confused. Can you try again, please?
