### What is your foot size if your height is 5 foot and 5 inches?

There is no way to say exactly how tall you will be from your
foot size. But there are studies that show that there is a positive
correlation between foot size and height. In general, a larger
person will have a larger foot to support the weight and movement.

You can not go by observation alone, you must do a scientific study
with a large number of people.

### What is a no correlation graph?

There are three types of correlation: positive, negative, and
none (no correlation).
Positive Correlation: as one variable increases so does
the other. Height and shoe size are an example; as one's height
increases so does the shoe size.
Negative Correlation: as one variable increases, the
other decreases. Time spent studying and time spent on video games
are negatively correlated; as the your time studying increases,
time spent on video games decreases.
No Correlation: there is no apparent relationship
between the variables. Video game scores and shoe size appear to
have no correlation; as one increases, the other has no effect. A
No Correlation graph would show this.

### What is the correlation of height vs shoe size?

From what I have read on a similar topic (foot length vs.
theoretical shoe size to real-world shoe size), there is a loose
correlation between height and shoe size. There is however a
stronger correlation between foot length and forearm length - and
really limb length in general. Simply said, a taller person will
likely have longer limbs - arms and legs are simply part of being
taller/shorter. However when you take into account different body
proportions, such as a person having relatively long legs vs. a
relatively tall torso (height to sholders while setting down) for
their height. Well foot length is another proportion variable. So
while a 6' tall (or taller) male will most likely wear a larger
shoe size than a 5'6" tall male (or shorter) - two random 6' tall
males will likely wear shoes of at least slightly different size.
To add more complication to any correlation, foot length vs. shoe
size are not "cast in stone" at all. Sorry if this is a bit long of
an answer to say "no", but "no" is not really the answer - just
closer to "yes".

### What does correlation does not mean causation mean?

People with bigger feet have higher intelligence, and people
with smaller feet have lower intelligence. In other words, foot
size is correlated with intelligence.
However, it's clear that if I could have made my feet bigger it
would not have made me more intelligent. In other words, in
increase in foot size is not a cause of greater intelligence.
That's what 'correlation does not imply causation' means.
