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.
Number of cups Stress level
3 5
2 3
4 3
6 9
5 4
1 2
7 10
3 5
Total Numbers: 8
Correlation: 0.8519
Did I answer this correctly?

Thank you for your help. I used that same webpage for help but I still wasn't sure that I was doing it correctly. Thanks for double checking.

Please note that stress variable can assume only two values high or low. Is it not nominal ? (You are told that this study was looking at the effects of stress (low or high) on consumption of caffeine).
