Question

In an effort to determine whether any correlation exists between
the price of stocks of airlines, an analyst sampled six days of
activity of the stock market spread out over 4 months. Using the
following prices of Delta stock and Southwest stock, compute the
coefficient of correlation. Stock prices have been rounded off to
the nearest tenth for ease of computation.

Delta |
Southwest |

45.96 | 38.76 |

47.3 | 45.41 |

47.93 | 16.1 |

51.78 | 49.58 |

52.17 | 44.34 |

46.96 | 18.4 |

*(Round the intermediate values to 2 decimal places.

Answer #1

Solution :

The correlation coefficient for the sample data will be as follows:

Where,

X : Delta

Y : Southwest

We have, n = 6

The correlation coefficient is 0.502.
