Linear regression statistics output

Hi

When I do linear regression there is an statistics output with r, rho and R^2.

Normally rho^2=R^2 when we do linear regression, but I can see that r^2=R^2.

My question: how is rho calculate in Geogebra?

Not sure about terminology (we use a different one in Italy), do you mean the Pearson's correlation coefficient?

Yes, thats correct.

But in the output statistics window as

6be3e42599d7e1d63267633b0683d701

both r and rho is calculated.

What is the difference?
