# Using the data from Exercise 6 Bear Measurements, the linear correlation coefficient is r = 0.980. Data From Exercise 6

## Question:

Using the data from Exercise 6 "Bear Measurements," the linear correlation coefficient is
r = 0.980.
Data From Exercise 6

Use Table 2-11 on page 71 to find the critical values of r. Based on a comparison of the linear correlation coefficient r and the critical values, what do you conclude about a linear correlation?
Table 2-11
Critical Values of the Linear Correlation Coefficient r
Number of Pairs of Data n ...................Critical Value of r
4 ...................................................................0.950
5 ...................................................................0.878
6 ...................................................................0.811
7 ...................................................................0.754
8 ...................................................................0.707
9 ...................................................................0.666
10.................................................................. 0.632
11.................................................................. 0.602
12.................................................................. 0.576
