Question

Given that n=82 data points are collected when studying the relationship between average daily temperature and time spent watching television, use the critical values table below to determine if a calculated value of r=−0.974 is significant or not.

df CV (+ and -) df CV (+ and -) df CV (+ and -) df CV (+ and -)
1 0.997 11 0.555 21 0.413 40 0.304
2 0.950 12 0.532 22 0.404 50 0.273
3 0.878 13 0.514 23 0.396 60 0.250

10 0.576 20 0.423 30 0.349    

Select the correct answer below:

 
r is significant because it is between the positive and negative critical values.
 
r is not significant because it is between the positive and negative critical values.
 
r is significant because it is not between the positive and negative critical values.
