Question

If the rank correlation coefficient is $$0.6$$ and the sum of squares of difference of ranks is $$66$$, then find the number pairs of observations.

Solution

$$P = 1 - 6 \dfrac{\sum di^2}{n(n^2 - 1)}$$$$0.6 = 1 - \dfrac{6 \times 66}{n(n^2 - 1)}$$$$\dfrac{6 \times 66}{n(n^2 - 1)} = 0.4$$$$n(n^2 -1) = \dfrac{3}{2} \times 66 \times 10 = 990$$$$n = 10$$$$10(10^2 - 1) = 10 (99) = 990$$Maths
