Using the two columns of data with the highest correlation in/for other calculations.

Is there a way that I can:

Have 5 sets of 2 columns. (Separate tables or not, doesn't matter)

Calculate the R value for each pair of columns.

Automatically find which is the highest R value and use the related data (the two columns used to calculate the highest Rvalue) in another calculation? Perhaps save it to a measure or something?



For example, with reference to the dummy table below:

 

Columns 1 & A correlation is calculated to be R1, correlation for columns 2 & A is R2 etc.

Auto find the highest R value out of the 5 calculated R values (R1, R2, R3R4 or R5).

Use only the respective numbered column (1,2,3,4 or 5) and column A in other measures or calculations etc.


Such as plot them to a graph, find max value or divide one by the other, this last part doesn't matter and will change with my needs, I do not require assistance with this part. If there is a measure or dax code that can do what I need just leave this open ended or put any calculation in there please, such as divide column 1 (or 2,3,4,5 if they have the highest correlation with column A) by column A.


Thank you in advance.

 The R values are not actually at the top of this data, they are just shown here to show their corresponding columns.

Thanks, I did read this beforehand, I have tried to rephrase, unfortunately I am struggling with the explanation and have no other data or formulas to provide.

I can calculate all of this in excel quite easily but need it to be dynamic in Power bi as the columns of data can change. Hopefully my rewording is better.
