Written Assignment 6 1. Calculate the Pearson correlation between hand and foot size for students in the Student Data Table. Graph the relationship, determine a hypothesis to test this relationship, and statistically test this hypothesis using alpha=0.05. Interpret all results in a paragraph citing the appropriate statistics.

Using the Student data table provided, I developed two hypotheses based off of the relationship between foot size and hand size. The null hypothesis stated that a large foot size did not necessarily correlate to a large hand size and the alternative hypothesis stated that a large foot size did correlate to a large hand size.
