The correlation coefficient r was calculated for data relating per capita cigarette consumption and male death rate, as measured 20 years later, in N=11 countries. The value of r was .74
Work Step by Step
Use the table, for the degrees of freedom df = N - 2 = 9. Move to the right, and find that the r value of .7348 is associated with a p value of .0.1. This means that an outcome this unusual would happen only about 1 time in 100 (if there were really no relationship between the 2 variables), which is unusual.
