5. The table below shows Psychology exam scores, Statistics Exam scores, and IQ scores for a random sample of students. What can you observe in the relationship between IQ and psychology, psychology and statistics, and IQ and statistics? Using a webcalculator, obtain the Pearsonâ€™s r and coefficient of determination for the following relationships.
a. Between the IQ and psychology scores
b. Between the IQ and statistics scores
c. Between the psychology scores and statistics scores.

6. In a study on caffeine and stress, college students indicated how many cups of coffee they drink per day and their current stress level on a scale of 1 to 10. The table shows the survey results. Using a webcalculator, obtain the appropriate correlation coefficients.

We do not do your work for you. Once you have answered your questions, we will be happy to give you feedback on your work. Although it might require more time and effort, you will learn more if you do your own work. Isn't that why you go to school?
I assume you can find the web calculator. 
IQ  1.0000
Psy  0.5923 1.0000
Stat  0.7367 0.7105 1.0000
a. corr(iq, psych) = 0.5923; coeff. of det. = 0.3508.
b. corr(iq, stat) = 0.7367; coeff. of det. = 0.5576.
c. corr(stat, psych) = 0.7105; coeff. of det. = 0.5048.

my professor says it The correlation coefficient is 0.8519. I don't understand how he arrived at this could someone please show me step by step that he would get this answer... Thank you
