The correlations between the parameters of Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) and Solar Flares (SFs) during the solar cycle 24 are investigated. To do this, we first collect the CMEs and SFs sample over the period from December 1, 2008 to April 30, 2017. The CMEs data were obtained from the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory/ Large Angle Spectrometric Coronagraph (SOHO / LASCO) database while the soft X-ray flares data sets are taken from Hinode/XRT mission. Then, we compile a sample of 519 CMEs associated flares by applying temporal and spatial conditions. We statistically analyze our sample of CMEs associated flares and divide them into two types: after-CMEs and before-CMEs based on their start time. The CMEs and flares properties show that there were significant features in all physical properties such as (kinetic energy, speed and acceleration) between two flare-associated CME types. We investigated the relation between the CMEs kinetic energy and flare flux. The correlation coefficient for this relation is R= 0.40, which is considered as weak relation.
