Enter a function in cell G13 to calculate the variance between salaries.
Enter a function in cell G14 to calculate the Covariance of the salaries and job satisfaction in the data set. Note this is a sample of data not a population.
Enter a function in cell F17 to calculate the correlation coefficient between employee salary and job satisfaction.
