**Unformatted text preview: **Correlation 1. I believe that people who prefer chocolate will avoid other candles and vice
versa. In order to test this hypothesis, I give six of my family members
identical Easter baskets. I observe how many jelly beans and how many
Cadbury Creme Eggs (chocolate!) each person eats. Below are the results. Calculate the correlation coefﬁcient. 1332. (3| q
