Step 1
Correlation coefficient, r:
The Karl Pearson’s product-moment correlation coefficient or simply, the Pearson’s correlation coefficient is a measure of the strength of a linear association between two variables and is denoted by r or rxy.
The coefficient of correlation rxy between two variables x and y for the bivariate data set (xi,yi)fori=1,2,3N is given below:
rxy=n(xy)(x)(y)[n(x2)(x2)]×[n(y2)(y2)]
Step 2
The population linear correlation coefficient is π, which measures the linear correlation of all possible pair of variable in same way r measures.
The population linear correlation coefficient is π, which measures the linear correlation of all possible pair of variables in population that represent the numerical summary of the population.
The sample linear correlation coefficient is r, which measures the linear correlation of all possible pair of variables in sample that represent the numerical summary of the sample.
The linear correlation coefficient value could be negative due to the presence of error, where pi takes some other value, might be zero or positive. The statistic r is used to estimate the population linear coefficient π.
Thus, the given result not necessarily implies that, the variables are negatively linearly correlated.

The following advanced exercise use a generalized ratio test to determine convergence of some series that arise in particular applications, including the ratio and root test, are not powerful enough to determine their convergence. The test states that if $$ lim{n}a{2n}an<12 then anconverges,while if lim{n}a{2n+1}an>12, then an diverges.

Let an=11+x22+xnn+x1n=(n1)!(1+x)(2+x)(n+x).

Show that a2nanex/22 . For which x > 0 does the generalized ratio test imply convergence of n=1an?

One hundred adults and children were randomly selected and asked whether they spoke more than one language fluently. The data were recorded in a two-way table. Maria and Brennan each used the data to make the tables of joint relative frequencies shown below, but their results are slightly different. The difference is shaded. Can you tell by looking at the tables which of them made an error? Explain. Maria's table YesNo Children0.150.25 Adults0.10.6 Brennan’s table YesNo Children0.150.25 Adults0.10.5
