Consider the following table and use the formulas that are given for computing the correlation coefficient. (Give your answer correct to two decimal places.)
x 1 1 0 0 0
y 7 3 5 6 6
SS(x) · SS(y)
(2) r = 1.00 Incorrect: Your answer is incorrect. .
The answer should be a negative number as the numbers increase as x becomes smaller.
The correlation coefficient lies between -0.2 and -0.3.
Please post your equation for r again to see if it is interpreted correctly.
Most of the time mistakes come from incorrect interpretation of expressions.
