We all know that if the covariance is positive then it means that if one increases then the other one also increases. If the covariance is negative it is the other way round. I know to calculate the covariance and deduce the relation between them. But I don't get an intuitive feeling regarding this covariance. How does this actually work? An example would help me.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks a lot.
