Therefore the first hypothesis is accepted; 2) the correlation coefficient (rx2y) shows that the rcount is higher than the rtable (0.786> 0.245). This means that the second hypothesis is accepted; and 3) the Fcount coefficient 9,421> Ftable 4.07. Based on the test results, Pvalue 0.000 is lower than 0.05.
