# Total Variation in Data - Overall Importance of the Principal Components

P

#### Preetica

As the system was not accepting spaces I gave comma instead of space.

Table 6.1 indicates the overall importance of the principal components. It
displays for each component ph the standard deviation, given by
√λh, the proportion of variance explained by each component, equal to λh/j λj, and the cumulative proportion explained by the first components up to ph included.The analysis shows that the first two components explain 84% of the total variation in the data while the first 5 explain 94%.

Can someone please the formula for total variation in data, how did we get the values 84% and 94%

Table 6.2 shows the values of the coefficients whj = uhj ; equivalently, it
indicates the eigenvectors of the covariance matrix V. The first component,
which alone explains 60% of the variance, is negatively correlated with the
attributes {cyl, disp,wt, carb}, whose meaning is explained in Appendix B,
while it is positively correlated with all the other attributes.

Can anyone please explain how the corelation is calculated like how did we get the value 60%
