I know the components of R2 as in ESS, TSS, RSS.
I know cov(x,y) = [$\sum$(yi - ybar)(xi - xbar)]/n-1

But that's as far as I can go, I have come across lowercase r yet or the sample correlation and proofing how they all fit is a bit beyond me so if someone can provide some help that would be great thanks.

This is not homework.

Sorry about that. Didn't come up in the test so I am all good.
