Step 1

Given Data

Pearson correlation coefficient (r) = 0.43

Sample size (n) =20

Formulation of Hypothesis

H0 : ρ = 0

H1 : ρ ≠ 0

To test the significance, test statistic is given by

Step 2

Finding the p-value

p-value = 0.05841( From Excel =T.DIST.2T(2.021,18))

p-value > 0.05 and p-value > 0.01

So, the correlatio...
