Find Karl Pearson’s coefficient of correlation between the variables X and Y for the following data

X | 11 | 7 | 9 | 5 | 8 | 6 | 10 |

Y | 10 | 8 | 6 | 5 | 9 | 7 | 11 |

A sample of 5 items is taken from the production of a firm. Length and weight of the five items arc given below :

Length (cm) | 3 | 4 | 6 | 7 | 10 |

Weight (gm) | 9 | 11 | 14 | 15 | 16 |

Calculate Karl Pearson's coefficient of correlation between the length and weight and interpret the result.
