An electronics retailer would like to investigate the relationship between the selling price of a digital camera and the demand for it. The table shown below gives the weekly demand for the camera in one particular market along with the corresponding price. These data have a sample correlation​ coefficient, rounded to three decimal​ places, of -0.930. Using a significance level of 0.10, test if the population correlation coefficient between the selling price and the demand for the camera is less...

. (Education) A researcher would like to know whether there is a consistent, predictable relationship between verbal skills and math skills for high school students. A sample of 300 students is obtained and each student is given a standardized English test and a standardized math test. Based on the test results, students are classified as high, medium, or low for verbal skills and for math skills. The results are summarized in the following frequency distribution: verbal skills high medium low...
