The production department of Celltronics International wants to explore the relationship between the number of employees who assemble a subassembly and the number produced. As an experiment, 3 employees were assigned to assemble the subassemblies. They produced 17 during a one-hour period. Then 5 employees assembled them. They produced 28 during a one-hour period. The complete set of paired observations follows.

The dependent variable is production; that is, it is assumed that different levels of production result from a different number of employees.

b.
A scatter diagram is provided below. Based on it, does there appear to be any relationship between the number of assemblers and production?

(Click to select)NoYes , as the number of assemblers (Click to select)decreasesincreases, so does the production.

c.
Compute the correlation coefficient. (Negative amounts should be indicated by a minus sign. Round sx, sy and r to 3 decimal places.)
