Find the correlation coefficient. Is it significant? c. Find the estimated difference if the proportion of wins is 0.500. d. Find the estimated difference if the proportion of wins is 0.650. e. Does it appear that a line is the best way to fit the data? Make sure that on all of the following you can state both the null and alternate hypothesis, find the pvalue, make a decision, state the conclusion and identify the Type I and Type II
