# The Difference Between Standardized and Regular Regression Coefficient

Please help with the following problem. Provide at least 200 words in the solution.

I know that a standardized regression coefficient is able to provide us with a ranking of the relative importance of each independent variable in a regression model. However, I am confused about the difference between the standardized and regular regression coefficient.

Can you help me distinguish the differences between these?
