dbar = 433/6

var(x) = x^2/n -xbar^2

var(x) = 40715/6 -(433/6)^2 = 1577.81

ybar = 182/6

var(y) = y^2 -ybar^2

var(y) = 7170/6 -(182/6)^2 = 274.89

cov(xy) = (xy)/n -(xbar)(ybar)

cov(xy) = 13513/6 -(433/6)(182/6) = 63.11

b.

sx = 43.51

sy = 18.16

C. r = cov(xy/sqrt(var(x)sqrt(var(y))

r = 63.11/sqrt(1577.81)sqrt(274.89) = 0.0958

r = 0.10
