Test to determine whether the population correlation coefficient is negative. Use a significance level of 0.05 for the hypothesis test.
A.Because t =-4.152 < -1.9432, reject the null hypothesis. Because the null hypothesis is rejected, the sample data does support the hypothesis that there is a negative linear relationship between x and y.
B.Because t =-4.152 < -1.9432, do not reject the null hypothesis. Because the null hypothesis is not rejected, the sample data support the hypothesis that there is a negative linear relationship between x and y.
C.Because t =-4.152 < -1.9432, do not reject the null hypothesis. Because the null hypothesis is not rejected, the sample data support the hypothesis that there is a negative linear relationship between x and y.
D.Because t =-9.895 < -1.9432, reject the null hypothesis. Because the null hypothesis is rejected, the sample data does support the hypothesis that there is a negative linear relationship between x and y.
