A study wants to examine the relationship between student anxiety for an exam and the number of hours studied. The data is as follows:

Student Anxiety Scores Study Hours
5 1
10 6
5 2
11 8
12 5
4 1
3 4
2 6
6 5
1 2

Why is a correlation the most appropriate statistic?
What is the null and alternate hypothesis?
