In the Example 7 there is coefficient of correlation provided. In order to solve the problem, we need to know formula (which in not given): corr(x,y) = cov(x,y)/(sx*sy).

Dear lecturer, please kindly advice if we need to know the relationship between correlation and covariance for exam?

The answers are at the back of the lectures notes, so say which bit of the answer you are not happy with.
(And do read the previous comment – it is most unlikely that the current examiner would ever want this.)

The last but one examiner did ask this once or twice, but it is very unlikely that the current examiner would want it
