The production department of Celltronics International wants to explore the relationship between the number of employees who assemble a subassembly and the number produced. As an experiment, 2 employees were assigned to assemble the subassemblies. They produced 11 during a one-hour period. Then 4 employees assembled them. They produced 18 during a one-hour period. The complete set of paired observations follows.

 Number of Assemblers One-Hour Production (units) 2 11 4 18 1 7 5 29 3 20

The dependent variable is production; that is, it is assumed that different levels of production result from a different number of employees.

Compute the coefficient of correlation.

 X Y (x- x̄ ) (y- ȳ ) (x- x̄)2 (y-ȳ )2 (x-x̄ )(y- ȳ) 2 11 -6 36 4 18 1 1 1 1 7 -10 100 5 29 2 4 24 3 20 3 0 0

x̄=_______                       ȳ=________              Sx=_________

Sy=_______                   r=__________

X Values
∑ = 15
Mean = 3
∑(X - Mx)2 = SSx = 10

Y Values
∑ = 85
Mean = 17
∑(Y - My)2 = SSy = 290

X and Y Combined
N = 5
∑(X - Mx)(Y - My) = 51

R Calculation
r = ∑((X - My)(Y - Mx)) / √((SSx)(SSy))

r = 51 / √((10)(290)) = 0.947
