    Using an online calculator with the following pairs:

    5 data pairs (x,y):
    ( 59.0 , 97.0 ); ( 65.0 , 102. ); ( 73.0 , 110. ); ( 80.0 , 117. ); ( 89.0 , 125. );


    Degrees of freedom = N (number of pairs) - 2 = 3

    Correlation coefficient r = 1.00

    Check the appropriate table for degrees of freedom and the level of significance to determine whether or not to reject the null.
