Statistics terminology question
Is there a term I can search for that describes the following:
- Study shows that A is correlated with B, r=0.9
- Different study shows C is correlated with B, r=0.8
The term I'm looking for is the "implied correlation" (my term) of A and C. 1) is it even epistemically valid, 2) how to calculate the implied r
My instinct tells me 1) is "sort of" and 2) is simply r1 * r2 but my instinct is often wrong. Also does Bayes' theorem somehow apply here??
