Statistics - Pearson correlation coefficient

Hello :)

Is there a connection between the number of employee subtractions and his motivation (I will attach a picture here)?

x = the number of employee subtractions
y = motivation

About two left columns in the table - it's just a calculation.
And then:

The answer is -0.85, therefore, there is a negative connection with strong intensity.

I didn't understand how and where the numbers of Rx and Ry (from the table) came from? I understood about: high=4.5 or 2=3, it's about ratings from low to high, but why these numbers? why it started from 1 in Rx and 1.5 in Ry?

Thanks!

Omg, I'm really sorry but it's not Pearson, it's Spearman's rank correlation coefficient: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spearm...on_coefficient

The entire post is only about Spearman.
Sorry again, sometimes I get confused between these names (Pearson and Spearman).

Do you still need the entire problem? if yes, I will post it :)
