Question

Bighorn sheep are beautiful wild animals found throughout the
western United States. Let *x* be the age of a bighorn sheep
(in years), and let *y* be the mortality rate (percent that
die) for this age group. For example, *x* = 1, *y* =
14 means that 14% of the bighorn sheep between 1 and 2 years old
died. A random sample of Arizona bighorn sheep gave the following
information:

x |
1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 |

y |
15.6 | 18.7 | 14.4 | 19.6 | 20.0 |

Σ*x* = 15; Σ*y* = 88.3; Σ*x*^{2} =
55; Σ*y*^{2} = 1584.57; Σ*xy* = 274.6

**Find r.**

(d) Test the claim that the population correlation coefficient is positive at the 1% level of significance. (Round your test statistic to three decimal places.)
