Question

Are the marks one receives in a course related to the amount of time spent studying the subject? To investigate this mysterious possibility, a student took a random sample of 10 students who had enrolled in an accounting class last semester. He asked each to report his or her mark in the course and the total number of hours spent studying accounting. These data are listed here: Study

$\begin{array}{rllllllllll}\text { time } & 40 & 42 & 37 & 47 & 25 & 44 & 41 & 48 & 35 & 28 \\ \text { Marks } & 77 & 63 & 79 & 86 & 51 & 78 & 83 & 90 & 65 & 47\end{array}$

Calculate the covariance.
