If my math teacher back from high school were to find out that I’m pulling the correlation & regression bullshit on a daily basis as part of my job, she would be mortified.
She gave me a sum total of 6/100 for my final semester, after which i dropped a year & dropped math totally.
Not that I’m good or anything. I’d still not get past double figures if I were to do that test again.
But that’s life, I guess. It doesn’t need to make sense and add up like your math problems.
