Workings:

x¯  = 4020/10 = 402                 

y¯ = 3550/10 = 355

1442_Example of Product moment correlation 2.png

= 0.89

Comment: The value acquired 0.89 suggests that the correlation between annual expenditure and annual income is high and positive. This shows that the more one earns the more one spends.
