The last matrix equation provides the formula for first-order partial correlation coefficients:

The general formula, for coefficients of orderp, is:

When there are four variables, it is possible to calculate i2 first-order and 6 second-order partial correlation coefficients. Computing a second-order coefficient necessitates the calculation of 3 first-order coefficients. For example:

i2.34
