Then its just arithmetic. If you have any problems let us know what they are and we will help with those specific problems. CB

I dont know how to calculate the cov of x,y from the table provided ....please advice Also please check if am i doing it correctly or no ....

CB This is what i have done Sample Correlation coeff where : Sample mean x,y : Standard deviation for x , y Is this the right formula that i am using??? then Is this answer correct ???

Yes, except the lower limit of summation should be 1, there should ne n terms in the sum if you divide by (n-1) then Is this answer correct ??? I don't think so, something closser to 0.6 would be right. CB
