the following table is on the relationship between baseball performance and salary im trying to interpret the tables ------- http://mywebpage.netscape.com/id8157/1.jpg based on the mean values, the player paid at least 1 million performed better the players paid below 1 million played not as well what exactly does the standard deviation tell me? ------- http://mywebpage.netscape.com/id8157/2.jpg the correlation coefficients for players earning at least 1 million is greater. this means the relationship betwwn salary and performance is large. the p-value for higher paid players is statistically significant because p is close to 0. ------- I appreciate it. THANK YOU.
