Question: Listed below are numbers of enrolled students in thousands and

Listed below are numbers of enrolled students (in thousands) and numbers of burglaries for randomly selected large colleges in a recent year. Is there sufficient evidence to conclude that there is a linear correlation between enrollment and burglaries? Do the results change if the actual enrollments are listed as 32,000, 31,000, 53,000, and so on?
Construct a scatterplot, and find the value of the linear correlation coefficient r. Also find the P-value or the critical values of r from Table A-6 using α = 0.05. Determine whether there is sufficient evidence to support a claim of a linear correlation between the two variables.
