The answer is 52

ALL OF THESE ARE WRONG I DOUBLE CHECKED AND IT SCORED A 8/20 THANKS A LOT smh

I'm sorry luckily I did not use your answers for my exam, but you should know these answers are ALL wrong! You have a few correct ones, but most are NOT correct.

A data set of size 19 has correlation coefficient of r = –0.432. Test the significance of r at the 5% level and at the 1% level

I changed my answer to match yours and yours were all wrong, mine were right, thanks for posting false information!!! I only wanted to double check my work!!! Wish I would have seen these comments before!
