Question 1.
From the following information obtained from a sample of 7 families of a society regarding height of father (in cm) and height of his adult son (in cm), calculate the correlation coefficient: Here, n = 7; x = Height of father and y = Height of son
Now, x̄ = $$\frac{\Sigma x}{n}$$ = $$\frac{1169}{7}$$ = 167 cm;
ȳ = $$\frac{\Sigma y}{n}$$ = $$\frac{1176}{7}$$ = 168 cm;
x̄ and ȳ are Integers. So the table for calculating r is prepared as follows: Correlation coefficient:
r = $$\frac{\Sigma(x-\bar{x})(y-\bar{y})}{\sqrt{\Sigma(x-\bar{x})^{2}} \cdot \sqrt{\Sigma(y-\bar{y})^{2}}}$$
Putting Σ(x – x̄) (y – ȳ) = 25, Σ(x – x̄)2 = 28 and Σ(y – ȳ)2 = 34 in the formula,
r = $$\frac{25}{\sqrt{28} \cdot \sqrt{34}}$$
= $$\frac{25}{\sqrt{952}}$$
= $$\frac{25}{30.85}$$
= 0.81 Question 2.
A local cottage industry making various snacks sells each snack in a packet of 100 gm. From a study for price determination regarding a new kind of wafer, the following information is obtained for the price and the demand: Find the correlation coefficient between price of wafer and its demand.
Here, n = 6; x = Price and y = Demand
Now, x̄ = $$\frac{\Sigma x}{n}$$ = $$\frac{180}{6}$$ = ₹ 30; ȳ = $$\frac{\Sigma y}{n}$$ = $$\frac{132}{6}$$= 22 (’000 units)
x̄ and ȳ are integers. So the table for calculating r is prepared as follows: Correlation coefficient:
r = $$\frac{\Sigma(x-\bar{x})(y-\bar{y})}{\sqrt{\Sigma(x-\bar{x})^{2}} \cdot \sqrt{\Sigma(y-\bar{y})^{2}}}$$
Putting Σ(x – x̄) (y – ȳ) = – 79, Σ(x – x̄)2 = 90 and Σ(y – ȳ)2 = 86 in the formula,
r = $$\frac{-79}{\sqrt{90} \cdot \sqrt{86}}$$
= $$\frac{-79}{\sqrt{7740}}$$
= $$\frac{-79}{87.98}$$
= – 0.90
Hence, the correlation coefficient between the price and demand of wafers obtained is – 0.90. Question 3.
From the following information of a sample of ten students of a school regarding their marks in two subjects Accountancy and Statistics, find the coefficient of correlation between the marks of two subjects: Here, n = 10; x = Marks in Accountancy; y = Marks in Statistics
Now, x̄ = $$\frac{\Sigma x}{n}$$ = $$\frac{640}{10}$$ = 64 marks; ȳ = $$\frac{\Sigma y}{n}$$ = $$\frac{610}{10}$$ = 61 marks
x̄ and ȳ are integers. So the table for calculating r is prepared as follows: Correlation coefficient:
r = $$\frac{\Sigma(x-\bar{x})(y-\bar{y})}{\sqrt{\Sigma(x-\bar{x})^{2}} \cdot \sqrt{\Sigma(y-\bar{y})^{2}}}$$
Putting Σ(x – x̄) (y – ȳ) = 3535, Σ(x – x̄)2 = 4390 and Σ(y – ȳ)2 = 3490 in the formula,
r = $$\frac{3535}{\sqrt{4390} \cdot \sqrt{3490}}$$
= $$\frac{3535}{\sqrt{15321100}}$$
= $$\frac{3535}{3914.22}$$
= 0.90
Hence, the correlation coefficient between the marks of Accountancy and Statistics obtained is 0.90 Question 4.

Here, n = 6;
x = No. of puzzles solved based on Mathematics
y = No. of puzzles solved based on Logic
Here, x̄ = $$\frac{\Sigma x}{n}$$ = $$\frac{58}{6}$$ = 9.67; ȳ = $$\frac{\Sigma y}{n}$$ = $$\frac{61}{6}$$ = 10.17
x̄ and ȳ are fractions. The values x and y are not large. So the table for calculating r is prepared as follows: Correlation Coefficient:
r = $$\frac{n \Sigma x y-(\Sigma x)(\Sigma y)}{\sqrt{n \Sigma x^{2}-(\Sigma x)^{2}} \cdot \sqrt{n \Sigma y^{2}-(\Sigma y)^{2}}}$$
Putting n = 6, Σxy = 598, Σx = 58, Σy = 61, Σx2 = 574 and Σy2 = 711 in the formula,
r = $$\frac{6 \times 598-(58)(61)}{\sqrt{6 \times 574-(58)^{2}} \cdot \sqrt{6 \times 711-(61)^{2}}}$$
= $$\frac{3588-3538}{\sqrt{3444-3364} \cdot \sqrt{4266-3721}}$$
= $$\frac{50}{\sqrt{80} \cdot \sqrt{545}}$$
= $$\frac{50}{\sqrt{43600}}$$
= $$\frac{50}{208.81}$$
= 0.24
Hence, the correlation coefficient between performances of children in two types of puzzles obtained is 0.24.

Question 5.
Find the correlation coefficient between capital (in crore ₹) invested and the profit (in crore ₹) from the following data: Here, n = 7;. x = Capital investment; y = Profit
Now, x̄ = $$\frac{\Sigma x}{n}$$ = $$\frac{110}{7}$$ = ₹ 15.71 crore; ȳ = $$\frac{\Sigma y}{n}$$ = $$\frac{64}{7}$$ = ₹ 9.14 crore
x̄ and ȳ are not integers and the values of x and y are not large. So the table for calculating r is prepared as follows: Correlation coefficient:
r = $$\frac{n \Sigma x y-(\Sigma x)(\Sigma y)}{\sqrt{n \Sigma x^{2}-(\Sigma x)^{2}} \cdot \sqrt{n \Sigma y^{2}-(\Sigma y)^{2}}}$$
Putting n = 7, Σxy = 1045, Σx = 110, Σy = 64, Σx2 = 1838 and Σy2 = 606 in the formula,
r = $$\frac{7 \times 1045-(110)(64)}{\sqrt{7 \times 1838-(110)^{2}} \cdot \sqrt{7 \times 606-(64)^{2}}}$$
= $$\frac{7315-7040}{\sqrt{12866-12100} \cdot \sqrt{4242-4096}}$$
= $$\frac{275}{\sqrt{766} \cdot \sqrt{146}}$$
= $$\frac{275}{\sqrt{111836}}$$
= $$\frac{275}{334.42}$$
= 0.82
Hence, the correlation coefficient between the capital investment and profit obtained is 0.82. Question 6.

Here, n = 5; x = No. of study hours, y = No. of sleeping hours
Now, x̄ = $$\frac{\Sigma x}{n}$$ = $$\frac{30}{5}$$ = 6 hours; ȳ = $$\frac{\Sigma y}{n}$$ = $$\frac{40}{5}$$ = 8 hours
x̄ and ȳ are integers. So the table for calculation of r is prepared as follows: Correlation coefficient:
r = $$\frac{n \Sigma x y-(\Sigma x)(\Sigma y)}{\sqrt{n \Sigma x^{2}-(\Sigma x)^{2}} \cdot \sqrt{n \Sigma y^{2}-(\Sigma y)^{2}}}$$
Putting Σ(x – x̄) (y – ȳ) = – 16, Σ(x – x̄)2 = 28 and Σ(y – y)2 = 10 in the formula,
r = $$\frac{-16}{\sqrt{28} \cdot \sqrt{10}}$$
= $$\frac{-16}{\sqrt{280}}$$
= $$\frac{-16}{16.73}$$
= – 0.96

Question 7.
From the following information of the age (in years) and blood pressure (in mm), find the correlation coefficient between age and blood pressure: Here, n = 8; x = Age; y = Systolic blood pressure
Now, x̄ = $$\frac{\Sigma x}{n}$$ = $$\frac{464}{8}$$ = 58 year; x̄ = $$\frac{\Sigma y}{n}$$ = $$\frac{1153}{8}$$ = 144.125 mm
x̄ is integer and ȳ is fraction. The values of x and y are large. So we calculate r by shortcut method.
Taking A = 58 and B = 150, we obtain new variables u = x – A = x – 58 and v = y – B = y – 150. The table for calculating r is prepared as follows: Correlation coefficient:
r = $$\frac{n \Sigma u v-(\Sigma u)(\Sigma v)}{\sqrt{n \Sigma u^{2}-(\Sigma u)^{2}} \cdot \sqrt{n \Sigma v^{2}-(\Sigma v)^{2}}}$$
Putting n = 8, luu = 340, lu = 0, ID = -47, Eu2= 314 and ID2 = 1089 in the formula,
r = $$\frac{8 \times 340-(0)(-47)}{\sqrt{8 \times 314-(0)^{2}} \cdot \sqrt{8 \times 1089-(-47)^{2}}}$$
= $$\frac{2720}{\sqrt{2512} \cdot \sqrt{8712-2209}}$$
= $$\frac{2720}{\sqrt{2512} \cdot \sqrt{6503}}$$
= $$\frac{2720}{\sqrt{16335536}}$$
= $$\frac{2720}{4041.72}$$
= 0.67
Hence, the correlation coefficient between age and blood pressure obtained is 0.67. Question 8.

Putting n = 6, Σuv = – 335, Σu = 5, Σv = 5, Σu2 = 307 and Σv2 = 455 in the formula,
r = $$\frac{6 \times(-335)-(5)(5)}{\sqrt{6 \times 307-(5)^{2}} \cdot \sqrt{6 \times 455-(5)^{2}}}$$
= $$\frac{-2010-25}{\sqrt{1842-25} \cdot \sqrt{2730-25}}$$
= $$\frac{-2035}{\sqrt{1817} \cdot \sqrt{2705}}$$
= $$\frac{-2035}{\sqrt{4914985}}$$
= $$\frac{-2035}{2216.98}$$

To make calculation of r simple and easy. We obtain new variables u and v by changing origin and scale.
The values of x are in multiple of 1000 and that of y are in multiple of 10. Therefore taking A = 30000; Cx = 1000 for x and B = 180, Cy = 10, we obtain the variables u = $$\frac{x-\mathrm{A}}{\mathrm{C}_{x}}$$ = $$\frac{x-30000}{1000}$$ and v = $$\frac{y-\mathrm{B}}{\mathrm{C}_{y}}$$ = $$\frac{y-180}{10}$$. The table for calculating r is prepared as follows: Correlation coefficient:
r = $$\frac{n \Sigma u v-(\Sigma u)(\Sigma v)}{\sqrt{n \Sigma u^{2}-(\Sigma u)^{2}} \cdot \sqrt{n \Sigma v^{2}-(\Sigma v)^{2}}}$$
Putting n = 6, Σuv = 102, Σu = 26, Σv = – 10, Σu2 = 222 and Σv2 = 214 in the formula,
r = $$\frac{6 \times 102-(26)(-10)}{\sqrt{6 \times 222-(26)^{2}} \cdot \sqrt{6 \times 214-(-10)^{2}}}$$
= $$\frac{612+260}{\sqrt{1332-676} \cdot \sqrt{1284-100}}$$
= $$\frac{872}{\sqrt{656} \cdot \sqrt{1184}}$$
= $$\frac{872}{\sqrt{776704}}$$
= $$\frac{872}{881.31}$$
= 0.99
Hence, the correlation coefficient between the yearly per capita income and the price index obtained is 0.99. Question 10.

r = $$\frac{7 \times 101-(-4)(-13)}{\sqrt{7 \times 20-(-4)^{2}} \cdot \sqrt{7 \times 795-(-13)^{2}}}$$
= $$\frac{707-52}{\sqrt{140-16} \cdot \sqrt{5565-169}}$$
= $$\frac{655}{\sqrt{124} \times \sqrt{5396}}$$
= $$\frac{655}{\sqrt{669104}}$$

r = $$\frac{6 \times 78-(-4)(-10)}{\sqrt{6 \times 106-(-4)^{2}} \cdot \sqrt{6 \times 86-(-10)^{2}}}$$
= $$\frac{468-40}{\sqrt{636-16} \cdot \sqrt{516-100}}$$
= $$\frac{428}{\sqrt{620} \cdot \sqrt{416}}$$
= $$\frac{428}{\sqrt{257920}}$$

Here, n = 10; Cov (x, y) = 30; Sx = 5; Sy2 = 144 Cov (x, y) ∴ Sy = 12
Now, r = $$\frac{{Cov}(x, y)}{\mathrm{S}_{x} \cdot \mathrm{S}_{y}}$$

Find the correlation coefficient between the height and weight from it.
Here, n = 10; x̄ = 160; ȳ = 55; Σxy = 90000; Sx = 25 and Sy = 10.
Now, r =$$\frac{\Sigma x y-n \bar{x} \bar{y}}{n \cdot S_{x} \cdot S_{y}}$$
= $$\frac{90000-10 \times 160 \times 55}{10 \times 25 \times 10}$$
